On the HealthStreet
The UF Department of Epidemiology is working to get research, medical and social resources to the people who need it most. To do that, they’re hitting the streets. HealthStreet is a new community engagement initiative designed to reduce disparities in health care and research. Community Health Workers will talk to residents at grocery stores, health fairs and other places in Alachua County to find the best way to meet their needs. Additionally, residents can visit HealthStreet to receive health screenings, use computers, participate in community classes and access the clothing closet. HealthStreet will hold its first open house from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 21 at its Eastside Campus location, 2124 NE Waldo Road, Building 1628, Suite 1200. This event is open to students, faculty and staff who’d like to learn more about partnering with HealthStreet. For more information, please call 352-294-4884.
