Speakers Resource Program

Attention: At this time, COVID-19 requires us to temporarily suspend our Speakers Resource Program and UF Health at Work in order to keep our physicians, nurses, staff and community safe from infection. We will begin accepting requests as soon as we are able to.

The UF Health Speakers Resource Program is a free community education service that provides educational programs presented by UF Health Shands professionals to community organizations, schools, businesses and civic clubs.

The program is designed to help people learn more about their health by interacting with physicians and other health care professionals in an informal atmosphere.
