Cancer presents many challenges to patients and their families. At Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, we believe that well informed patients can better deal with those challenges.
Knowledge about cancer helps patients to become active participants in their health care. Knowing about cancer risk factors can help people prevent certain cancers.
Awareness of early warning signs can lead to earlier detection, when cancer is in the most treatable stages. The Resource and Learning Center (RLC) provides reliable, relevant and current information about all aspects of cancer.
Open to Everyone
The RLC is free and open to our patients and the community. Patients with cancer and their families are especially encouraged to visit. A librarian is available to help visitors research and find information about cancer. The Resource and Learning Center is located on the second floor within the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, 195 Little Albany Street in New Brunswick, NJ. The center is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
