Trailblazer. Risk-taker. Dreamer. Doer.
“Lillian D. Wald’s unselfish devotion to humanity is recognized around the world and her visionary programs have been widely copied everywhere. Even a cursory examination of the record will show that her contributions to society equal or surpass such appropriately venerated women as Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, and Margaret Sanger. Ms. Wald deserves to be better remembered and honored.”
- Val J. Halamandaris, late, long- time president of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC)
