The event was in partnership with the Passaic County Department of Health and Board of Chosen Freeholders.

“Living a healthy lifestyle is important to breast health and early detection is essential to a positive outcome not only for breast cancer, but for so many other critical health issues," said Nagle. “The Women’s Wellness Expo in Passaic County will go beyond raising awareness to facilitate access to care for everyone in our communities—insured or uninsured, provide health education and advocate for women to take action with their health.
