As the first NCORP Community Site within the state of New Jersey, Atlantic Health Cancer Consortium Community Oncology Research Program (AHCC-CORP) combines the collective strengths of world-class health care systems with community oncology care delivery.

AHCC-CORP covers an area with diverse geography and demographics, representing approximately 70% of New Jersey’s population. The program expands the NCORP network by 6.5 million people; with a higher cancer incidence rate than the US as a whole (477.5 vs 441.2 cases per 100,000). Regions within the AHCC-CORP are even further elevated.
