Mobile Outreach Clinic Nurse Michelle Nall and Care Coordinators Taylor Hopper and Bhuvna Mahajan were among those published in Project MUSE’s Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved this month. Their article, Community Women and Reproductive Autonomy: Building an Infrastructure for Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Services in a Mobile Health Clinic was published on March 3, 2019. 

This article describes the implementation of a long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) program in a free primary care clinic in central Florida. A background of LARC is presented, along with a description of the infrastructure built by the University of Florida Mobile Outreach Clinic, in an effort to share a framework for the provision of LARC services with other resource-limited settings.

Michelle currently serves as a health care provider for the Mobile Outreach Clinic and can often be found helping patients on the bus. Taylor Hopper and Bhuvna Mahajan were both volunteer Care Coordinators that excelled within the program.
