What is the North Florida Health Corps?

The North Florida Health Corps is a program of the National Health Corps AmeriCorps program. The program began in Jacksonville in 2004 with the mission of helping to fulfill unmet healthcare needs and to decrease disparities in the local healthcare system. The North Florida Health Corps is administered by the Duval County Health Department's Maternal and Child Health Division in partnership with local community agencies. NFHC members serve in health care and public health settings and provide a variety of health-related services. Whether serving the homeless population, HIV/AIDS patients, children, the uninsured, or other underserved individuals, Jacksonville is full of opportunities for Corps members.

NFHC members live and serve primarily in Jacksonville, Florida. Host sites and services are located in Jacksonville and adjacent counties (Duval, Baker, Clay, Nassau, and St. Johns).
