Dr. Mary Lou Adams is an associate professor of clinical nursing at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing. Her research focuses on the health promoting behaviors of women, particularly of minority women, who often are part of underserved populations. She is the project director of a state-wide initiative funded by the Texas Cancer Council to develop a community-based model for breast cancer screening outreach and case management services for African American women. The project was designed to increase the numbers of African American women screened for breast cancer in Texas, especially those that are poor and underserved. She is also the project coordinator for the School of Nursing's Community Women's Wellness Center, which provides breast cancer screening services such as clinical breast exams, vouchers for free mammograms and pap smears, follow-up services and the teaching of breast self examination to women in the Austin/Travis County area.
