The Andee’s Army Youth Brain and Spinal Cord Foundation recently hosted a host committee luncheon at Cherokee Town Club in Buckhead, where Anna Choo Elmers, M.D., J.D., staff psychiatrist at Shepherd Center, spoke. Andee’s Army provides critical support for children with spinal cord and brain injuries require specialized treatment, often not covered by insurance. The nonprofit will host its annual Evening of Hope gala Sept. 21 at Flourish in Buckhead, and this year’s theme is “Planting Seeds of Hope.” Elmers is the event’s honoree, and tickets are $300.
