Chronic Disease Prevention and Screening Section

Chronic Disease Prevention and ControlThe Chronic Disease Prevention and Screening Section (CDPS) is committed to achieving true improvements in people's health by encouraging healthy personal behaviors. Improved quality of life and extended years of healthy living for New Hampshire residents are the overall goals for all activities undertaken through Chronic Disease programs and services.

CDPS partners with health and education agencies, community health centers, local and national voluntary agencies and associations, the private sector, and federal agencies. The programs which make up the CDPS include the following:

  • The Cancer Registry is a statewide, population-based cancer surveillance program that collects incidence data on all cancer cases diagnosed or treated in the State of New Hampshire.
  • The Let No Woman Be Overlooked - Breast and Cervical Cancer Program offers eligible participants screening services including mammography, and Pap tests.
  • The New Hampshire Colorectal Cancer Screening Program seeks to increase colorectal cancer screening for New Hampshire residents through the provision of free screening colonoscopies and promotion of colorectal cancer screening through healthcare partners.
  • The New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Control Program helps insure the implementation of public health programs, policies and objectives to reduce the public and private burden of cancer by improving interventions, diagnosis, care and treatment in the NH population.
  • The Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program addresses risk factors for heart disease and stroke to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in New Hampshire.
  • The Oral Health Program contracts with agencies across the state to provide preventive and reparative dental services for NH's children and adults who don't have access to dental care.

The CDPS also works with other partners in New Hampshire to control other forms of chronic disease.
