Led by Dr. Linda Cottler, chair of the UF Department of Epidemiology and co-director of the CTSI Community Engagement and Research Program, HealthStreet has a team of community health workers who go out into the community to interview Alachua County residents about their health concerns and connect them to opportunities to participate in research as well as medical and social services.
