SHOOP helps Penn students become hospice volunteers. Penn Student Amit Mehrotra established SHOOP in 2001. Amit had received hospice training in high school, and recognized an opportunity on Penn’s campus. SHOOP helps students by coordinating volunteer training and helps with community outreaching bringing the message of hospice services available for all under their Medicare benefit. We are also the voice of hospice on campus, providing information on end of life issues. SHOOP offers a variety of volunteer opportunities working with Wissahickon Hospice of Penn Home Care & Services.
