Why is Health Research Important to Me?
Have Your Voice Heard in Research

Less than 2 percent 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 all populations in the research process so that research findings will be a reflection of our diverse community and applicable to the greatest number of people.

You can have your voice heard in health research by becoming a HealthStreet member.  Call HealthStreet at 352-294-4880 to schedule an appointment with a HealthStreet Community Health Worker.
