Resources for Researchers: HealthStreet makes it easy!


HealthStreet was created with the mission to reduce disparities between healthcare and research

HealthStreet aims to increase the community’s trust in research through meaningful collaboration. With a Community Health Worker, each community member completes a health intake that assesses his or her health concerns and conditions from head to toe.

What does that mean for you? With more than 9,600* HealthStreet members, we can readily connect willing participants to your study who meet the eligibility criteria from the data we collected!

 HealthStreet’s Study Navigations and Enrollments:

  • Approximately 50% of HealthStreet members have been navigated to a research study*
  • Of those navigated, 43% were enrolled in a research study*

HealthStreet also provides the following for UF researchers:

  • Navigation of screened and eligible participants in our database
  • Space at our facility for research studies, meetings or classes with free parking
  • Survey design assistance
  • Socio-demographic and health profiles of North Central Florida Community for papers and grants
