Cancer Prevention Study-3: Help Finish the Fight!

This is the final year to enroll in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The Society is seeking anyone to enroll who is between 30 and 65 years old;  who has never been diagnosed with cancer (excluding skin cancers); and who is willing to commit to the study long-term. The ultimate goal is to enroll 300,000 adults from various racial and ethnic backgrounds by December 31, 2013.

The purpose of CPS-3 is to better understand ways to prevent cancer.  This multi-year survey will study lifestyle, behavioral, environmental, and genetic factors that may cause or prevent cancer with the ultimate goal of eliminating cancer as a major health concern.

There are several opportunities to participate in CPS-3 occurring in the Western Region this spring and summer. CPS-3 enrollment will be held in the counties of Erie, Crawford, Butler, Beaver, Indiana, Allegheny, Washington and Greene – including at our own Wilfred R. Cameron Wellness Center on May 21.
