Women's Health

Atlantic Health System is enhancing access to clinical trials, so that underserved members of our community in need of cancer care can receive the latest treatments. Along with other leading health care systems in New Jersey, we recently created the Atlantic Health Cancer Consortium, which is the first NJ-based National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program. This initiative aims to increase adult and pediatric participation in cancer clinical trials focusing on prevention, screening, care delivery, treatment, medical imaging and quality of life.
