After eight years serving as separate coalitions, the Essex and Passaic County Cancer Coalitions united on July 1, 2012 to form the regional two-county Essex-Passaic Wellness Coalition, with an enhanced mission and combined meetings.

Information and resources on cancer survivorship during the COVID-19 pandemic

The following draft mission statement has been discussed and reviewed by the Leadership Council of the Essex-Passaic Wellness Coalition (EPWC), most recently in January 2013.  Unless and until it is approved by a full quarterly meeting of the EPWC, it is a draft statement, and not yet official.


To reduce the burden of cancer and other chronic diseases on all Essex and Passaic County residents by the promotion of improved outreach, education, screening, access to treatment and follow-up.
