The Coalition is headed by a Leadership Council (LC).  The Principal Investigator is Stanley H. Weiss, MD.  Dr. Weiss is a full-time faculty member at both Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and Rutgers School of Public Health in Newark, as well as vice-chair of the Oncology Committee at University Hospital.

The LC provides guidance to the coalition, acting in effect as a steering committee. It identifies goals to be achieved, and works with & mobilizes the entire coalition membership to achieve these goals.
