Cancer Education and Early Detection
In collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Health, Trenton Health Team (THT) provides comprehensive screening services for breast, cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancer as part of the New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) program.
Studies show these cancers can be treated more effectively when found early.
Statewide, NJCEED services are provided through 21 contracted lead agencies, with THT as the lead agency for Mercer County.
Services provided by THT and other lead agencies include education, outreach, early detection, case management, screening, tracking, and follow-up, all at no cost to eligible participants.
Persons eligible for these services must have income at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level for their household size, and be uninsured or under-insured.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 609-888-6189 or email NJCEED Nurse Care Manager Beverly Henderson.
