Did you know?

Less than 2% of the population participates in health research. Women, older adults, members of racial/ethnic minority groups and rural populations are often underrepresented in research, leading to findings that do not account for everyone.

HealthStreet was created to include many populations to make research findings a reflection of our diverse community and to help create health findings that can be applied to the greatest amount of people.

HealthStreet Gives People a Voice in Health Research

HealthStreet is a community engagement program at the University of Florida that bridges the gaps in health care and health research.

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