Cancer Coalition

The Hunterdon and Mercer County Regional Chronic Disease Coalition

The Hunterdon-Mercer County Regional Chronic Disease Coalition, funded by New Jersey Department of Health, Division of Family Health Services, Office of Cancer Control and Prevention, is committed to decreasing the cancer incidence and mortality rates through policy, system and environmental approaches. Coalition initiatives are achieved through partnerships between local public health care providers, human service organizations, churches, worksites, schools, and community/civic groups, cancer survivors and interested parties. The Coalition establishes and maintains community-wide involvement in the planning, coordination, and implementation of cancer and chronic disease-focused initiatives.

Office of Cancer Control and Prevention

The Office of Cancer Control and Prevention (OCCP) coordinates comprehensive cancer control efforts in New Jersey and is a collaborative process by which a community and its partners pool resources to reduce illness and death due to cancer through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation, and palliation.

The OCCP participates in the national efforts of the CDC to establish state-based cancer control plans and conduct prevention of cancer risk factors, enhance early detection of preventable cancers and facilitate survivorship through the activities of its Regional Chronic Disease Coalitions.
