NJCEED Cancer Screening Program

Hunterdon NJ Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) Program

The Hunterdon NJ Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) grant program at the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center has been providing free cancer screenings services since 1997. This grant program is funded by the New Jersey Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This program was implemented as a strategy to find cancer at an early stage before symptoms develop, prevent the occurrence of cancer, and ultimately improve health outcomes. In addition, NJCEED staff conducts English-Spanish outreach, education, and navigation services to improve care for the underserved population.

It is our commitment to provide the following free cancer screenings:

For Women:

  • Breast: starting at age 40, clinical breast exam and an annual mammogram
  • Cervical: 21-29 years of age, a Pap test, and 30-65 years of age, an HPV & Pap co-testing
  • Colorectal: beginning at age 45, a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) and colonoscopy

For Men:

  • Colorectal: beginning at age 45, the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) and colonoscopy
  • Prostate: beginning at age 55, both the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) and Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) or at age 45 if at risk (African American men, strong family medical history of prostate cancer)

These screenings services are available to individuals who:

  • do not have health insurance, the underinsured or those with a high deductible
  • do not have Medicare or Medicaid
  • are under the 250% NJ Income Guidelines
