Joseph E. Enright Foundation

The Joseph E. Enright Foundation was established in Summit, NJ in 1999, three years after the young internal medicine physician died from malignant melanoma. The non profit, charitable foundation has focused on promoting better health for all through health and cancer screenings, lecture series, health education scholarships and funding of research into the causes and treatments of diseases including melanoma, breast cancer, leukemia and diabetes.

The Enright Foundation has sponsored lecture series on topics such skin cancer, stroke, heart attack, hypertension, cholesterol control, breast cancer, allergy and asthma, osteoporosis, arthritis, gastroenterologic disease, smoking and lung disease, and sports injuries. The Foundation has donated medical supplies, offered scholarship programs for healthcare education, has held outreach programs with early detection screening programs and has supported medical research through contributions to national organizations.

In the spring of 2006, the Board of Trustees refined the mission of the Foundation to focus exclusively on the educational aspects of healthcare. To that end, the Foundation concentrates its efforts primarily on the scholarship program, community educational activities, and continuing medical education lectures (CME) for healthcare professionals. A website based health reference library is in the process of being developed as well.

Applications for scholarship awards have risen sharply as the program receives more widespread attention. Likewise, the health lecture series, possible through cooperation with the Summit Medical Group has been very well received by ever larger audiences.
