Dr. Nan Van Den Bergh was a social work academic and practitioner for over 30 years. She has undertaken research, and has offered national and regional conference presentations, on the topic of removing barriers to care for women who partner with women. As a result of that experience, as well as her personal breast cancer treatment and recovery experience, Van Den Bergh founded the only nonprofit organization in Florida with the exclusive and explicit mission to improve access to quality health care for LBT females: Area Resource and Referral Organization for Women (ARROW, Inc.).

Through grants funded by the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, Van Den Bergh has offered the ARROW training to regional health care professionals, including FIU Wellness Center staff as well as FIU and UM medical students.
