We want to make you aware of the Women Helping Women Lung Cancer Screening Study that is coming soon! It is for women who live in Alachua County, are 50 to 80 years of age, who have smoked an equivalent of 1 pack of cigarettes a day for at least 25 years. Talk to your CHW or call us if you are interested (352-294-4880).


February is American Heart Month which motivates Americans to adopt healthy lifestyles to prevent heart disease. Focusing on your heart health has never been more important. People with poor cardiovascular health are also at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. UF HealthStreet is here to provide free blood pressure screenings. Visit our facility or call us for more information at 352-294-4880.




This week our Community Health Workers will be at various locations around the city to offer health referrals, and provide the Deterra™ pouch and NARCAN® Nasal Spray; we can also help you learn which research studies you are eligible for. Our Community Health Workers will sign you up to be a HealthStreet member. Below are the times and locations of where our CHWs will be. 




HealthStreet welcomes our newest Community Health Worker, Elizabeth Courey.

"I began interning at HealthStreet last summer. From the start, I was drawn to the sustainability of community health work. I think it is vital that we increase health knowledge, access to resources, and trust within the community. Since I became a staff member in January, I have learned even more about bridging gaps in healthcare and health research. I am passionate about community health work and I look forward to it each day."

+The Putting Families First Program is offering the opportunity to work with four health professions students who will develop a health plan specifically for you and your family. The students provide education on health topics, wellness plans, and finding community resources to improve health. Anyone living in Alachua County or surrounding counties is eligible for the program.
