At a time when health care is front page news, Always a Sister offers the inspiring story of Lillian D. Wald (1867–1940), a pioneer in the early public health movement. After founding the Henry Street Settlement and the Visiting Nurse Service in New York City, Lillian D. Wald went on to become a major player in the shaping of health care policies during the Progressive period.
