The Joseph E. Enright Foundation (JEEF) is dedicated to the memory of Joseph E. Enright, MD—loving husband and father, loyal friend and caring physician. Dr. Enright, an exceptional man to all who knew him, lost his battle with malignant melanoma in 1996 at the age of 37. The foundation was founded in 1999 by his colleagues, a group of physicians and administrators at the Summit Medical Group, to foster increased awareness of melanoma in our community and to support students entering health care study programs.
JEEF serves Central to Northern New Jersey by providing sun safety workshops to the general public, an annual lecture on melanoma, an online health information resource library and educational scholarships to exceptional individuals pursuing careers in the field of healthcare.
