Dr. Nancy Hardt has dedicated decades to teaching medical students, political leaders and the community about the causes and solutions to health care disparities for children and families. In 2010, Hardt founded UF’s Mobile Outreach Clinic. The clinic provides primary health care services for women, men and children in underserved areas of Gainesville and Alachua County.

Hardt was instrumental in the development of the Family Data Center, which unlike any previous effort, brought together multidiscipline data sources (criminal offense data, Dept. of Children and Families, Dept. of Juvenile Justice, the Dept. of Education, health records, to name a few) into one secure, data collection and retrieval system.

Hardt retired in 2015 after 34 years of service to the University of Florida’s College of Medicine. During her tenure she served as the Director of Health Disparities and Service Learning Programs, a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and a Professor of Pathology in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida.
