The Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care Pamela Puppe Patient Care Scholarship was established in 2021 to benefit employees of Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care who are pursuing higher education to advance their knowledge and skills to care for Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care patients.
Mrs. Puppe dreamed as a child of being a nurse, but she did not have the resources or support to pursue her dream. It is her hope that this scholarship will provide the resources and support she wished she had to the employees of Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care. Mrs. Puppe established this scholarship to honor the difference Kansas City Hospice's caregivers have made in some of the most difficult times in her life.
