To help cancer patients and their families
better understand their diagnoses, The Steeplechase Cancer Center features a
resource library featuring more than 200 books, DVDs and CDs, as well as
computers with Internet access. The computers and materials were supported
through a grant from Ethicon, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson Company, to Somerset
Health Care Foundation.
Specially trained volunteers help patients find materials, which
range from books on types of cancer to vegetarian cookbooks and meditation CDs,
and help patients locate reputable Web sites that can supplement the information
provided by their care team.
Patients and their families have access to a variety of educational
programs and patient information through Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset's
Community Health Department. For a listing of upcoming events, visit the
