In 2002, the Governor commissioned the first New Jersey Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan (NJ-CCCP).* As part of this initiative, a Cancer Capacity and Needs Assessment (C/NA) was conducted in each county, supported by the Office of Cancer Control and Prevention in the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services. To view the Essex County C/NA Report go to Reports.
* The first NJ-CCCP covered the five-year period 2003-2007. Substantial portions were written by the ECCC Founder and Director, Dr. Weiss. The second NJ-CCCP covered the five-year period from 2008-2012. The third NJ-CCCP covered the five-year period from 2013-2018.
From 2003 to 2007, Stanley H. Weiss, MD, the Director of the Essex-Passaic Wellness Coalition (who is the Principal Investigator of the grant under which the coalition is funded) also served as chairman of the Evaluation Committee for the statewide Task Force on Cancer Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment in New Jersey. In that capacity, he and his staff (among other endeavors) developed the first two statewide biennial status reports on the NJ-CCCP. These are available here.
Dr. Weiss has engaged in numerous other endeavors in the areas of community health, public health, epidemiology, and related fields.
