Women, older adults, members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and rural populations are often underrepresented in research, leading to findings that do not account for everyone.


This results in a cohort of research participants that are an accurate reflection of our community, and research findings that can be applied to the greatest number of people.

HealthStreet is a community engagement program at the University of Florida with a mission to improve the health of our community by bridging gaps in healthcare and health research.


Using our four aims—Assessment, Service, Education, and Community—HealthStreet is able to provide people with a voice in research and the ability to take part in their community’s health.

Whether you’re a community member, a researcher, or an organization, HealthStreet is here for you.
