HealthStreet First Annual Night of Dance


On Aug. 20, 2016, UF HealthStreet hosted a community event in the heart of Gainesville, the first Annual Night of Dance, held at Bo Diddley Plaza. This was an amazing celebration of our community’s diversity, creativity, and commitment to improved health. Around 500 people attended the event, enjoying fun activities and dancing while gaining access to health education and screenings provided by about 40 tabling organizations, including: Alachua County Library District, Alachua County Department of Health, UF Center for Arts in Medicine, UF IFAS Family Nutrition Program, Equal Access Clinic Network, UF Mobile Outreach Clinic, Gainesville Health and Fitness, and UF Pain Research and Intervention Center of Excellence. Community partners included the City of Gainesville and the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency. The evening was a lively convergence of people from all backgrounds coming together for a common cause: to better their community’s health through the art of dance!
