cancer control is a dynamic and ongoing process which can only be
achieved through an active and committed partnership. This can be accomplished
with public and private sectors working together from the belief
that neither entity can do it alone.
Our mission is to develop, recommend,
advocate, and promote an integrated, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary
approach to reducing the incidence, illness, and death from cancer.
This will be addressed through a culturally-sensitive plan which
reflects prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation,
palliation, and quality of life issues and will embrace all of the
citizens of New Jersey. Coalition building, partnerships, and education
are essential to achieving this mission.”
