HealthStreet Event Calendar

Every month, HealthStreet hosts a variety of services, community health worker events, classes, and support groups! Check out our calendar.

Community Health Workers

CHWs provide outreach around the city throughout the week, offering FREE health resources like Deterra™ Deactivation Bags and NARCAN® Nasal Spray kits. CHWs can also let you know which research studies you may be eligible for and can help you sign up to become a HealthStreet member.

If you can't meet with our CHWs while they are on outreach, stop by 2401 SW Archer Rd, Gainesville, FL 32608. We have a clothing and toiletry closet, and can provide you with face masks, health-related resources, referrals, and more!
