Welcome to HealthStreet
HealthStreet is a community engagement program at the University of Florida that aims to improve the health of our community by bridging gaps in healthcare and health research.
Using our four aims—Assessment, Service, Education, and Community—HealthStreet is able to provide people with a voice in research and the ability to take part in their community’s health.
HealthStreet’s Community Health Workers (CHW) assess health concerns, conditions, and research perceptions of community members. They also provide referrals to community members for medical and social services, as well as opportunities to participate in health research, relevant to their health concerns and health conditions. HealthStreet is located in Gainesville, FL, but reaches people all across the state of Florida. Our dedicated team of Community Health Workers bridge the gap between community members and the resources available to them, including medical and social services, and opportunities to participate in research here
Whether you’re a community member, a researcher, or an organization, HealthStreet is here for you!
To reduce disparities in healthcare and research through community and other stakeholder engagement
