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 that these cancers can be treated more effectively when found early.
Statewide, the NJCEED program services are provided through 21 contracted lead agencies, with Trenton Health Team operating 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. Persons eligible for these services must be at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level and be uninsured or under-insured.
