UTHSC mobile health unit expands rural access while educating nursing students


The University of Tennessee Health Science Center’s College of Nursing on Thursday, May 11, unveiled a new mobile health unit dedicated to expanding health care access in rural areas while integrating rural health education into the college’s degree programs.

The unit will be staffed and operated by the college to increase health care access in Lake and Lauderdale counties, both of which rank amongst the state’s most socially vulnerable counties and have no OBGYNs or pediatricians.
