On August 28 at noon, Anne Rutherford Lower will deliver a Banner Lecture entitled "Sheltering Arms: A Legacy of Caring."
Sheltering Arms: A Legacy of Caring is a new book featuring photographs and stories from every era of the organization’s rich history. Published in honor of Sheltering Arms’ 125th anniversary, the book chronicles the healthcare institution’s growth from humble beginnings in a donated house in downtown Richmond to a nationally recognized physical rehabilitation leader in 2014.
Anne Lower has been an ardent supporter of Sheltering Arms for decades and has served as a member of the board of directors, president of the board, member of the women’s council, and as patient advocate. She is the author of Sheltering Arms Hospital: A Centennial History (1889–1989) and served as a valuable resource during the production of Sheltering Arms: A Legacy of Caring.
Copies of the book Sheltering Arms: A Legacy of Caring are available for purchase online or in the Museum Shop. However, there will be no signing after the lecture.
