Research Helping People

HealthStreet, a community engagement program at the University of Florida, employs reproducible, evidence-based community outreach practices to reduce disparities in healthcare and research. Community Health Workers help bridge the gap between community members and the resources available to them, including medical and social services and opportunities to participate in research.
