NJ Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED)

WHO WE ARE

The Sussex County Division of Health is the lead provider for the NJ Cancer Education and Early Detection Program in Sussex County. We offer comprehensive outreach, education and free screening services for breast, cervical, colorectal and prostate cancers to those who are eligible. Screenings focus on early detection of cancer when it is most treatable. Many cancers have a high cure rate when they are caught early. Our screening programs also include an educational component designed to help you reduce your cancer risk. Funding is granted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State Department of Health.
