Essex_Passaic_Wellness_Coalition -- Chronic disease coalition funded by NJDOH for Essex & Passaic Counties


About Essex_Passaic_Wellness_Coalition
English (USA)

The Essex and Passaic County Cancer Coalitions, after 8 yrs serving as separate coalitions, united to form the new regional two-county Essex-Passaic Wellness Coalition (EPWC), effective July 1, 2012, with an enhanced mission in terms of chronic disease and with combined meetings. We are partly supported by a health services grant from the NJDOH Office of Cancer Control and Prevention (OCCP).
Please visit our website at for detailed information & updates, including upcoming & past meetings and talks.
The current EPWC Coordinator is Daniel M. Rosenblum, PhD, who can be reached at telephone (973) 972-4623 [fax: 973-972-6556]. Mr. Vincent Smith is an off-site coordinator.
Professor Stanley H. Weiss, MD, FACP, FACE at the Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School, Newark is the Founder, Director & Principal Investigator of the EPWC.
We work closely with The Essex County CEED Coalition, which was formed in order to encourage local partnerships to promote cancer screening services, as a cooperative venture from the St. Michael's Medical Center's "In the Pink" CEED program [formerly based at East Orange General Hospital] and the NJMS/University Hospital "S.A.V.E. Women and Men" CEED program. These are coordinated, respectively, by Ms. Aretha Hill-Forte and Ms. Catherine Marcial.
Since Sept 9th 2004, all meetings of the Essex County CEED Coalition have been held in conjunction with the (then newly formed) ECCC & now with the EPWC.
These meetings occur quarterly, are always public & open to all, and usually include talks by nationally recognized experts.
We actively maintain on our web site a COMMUNITY CALENDAR of cancer-related events - especially screening & education. Information can be downloaded or printed in several formats, such as a monthly calendar view or a list of events by date.
We warmly welcome submission of information about relevant events & other timely news: CONTACT one of the coordinators noted above. Please visit our Web site for more information: - from which you can also request to be added to our email list.
In addition to our web site, we also publicize our activities and other information at both a Facebook page,, which we encourage you to "like" if you use Facebook, and a Twitter feed @EssPasWell, which we encourage you to follow if you use Twitter.
