Cancer Prevention Study-3

This multi-year survey will study lifestyle, behavioral, environmental and genetic factors that may cause or prevent cancer

Cancer Prevention Study-3Residents of Nassau County have been invited to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study. This is the third study of its kind.

The Society’s Epidemiology Research Program is inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer to join a historic research study. The ultimate goal is to enroll 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the United States. The purpose of Cancer Prevention Study-3 (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 problem for this and future generations.

Enrollment in the program will be available on November 5th, at Relay for Life, at Yulee High School from 2:30 to 6:30 PM.

This is a grassroots effort in which Relay participants from across the country can actively particpate in cancer research.

No appointment is needed, just arrive during the designated times. Anyone between the ages of 30-65 years old who have never been diagnosed with any form of cancer and are willing to commit to a long term study can easily participate in the study.

There are two steps to the enrollment process. First, you will be asked to read and sign a consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide some physical measurements and give a small sample of blood drawn by a trained, certified phlebotomist.

Secondly, you will be asked to complete a more detailed survey in the comfort of your home. This questionnaire will ask lifestyle, behavioral and other questions related to your health.

After that you will periodically be sent a survey to update that information.

Join in the movement for less cancer and more birthdays. Enroll in CPS-3.
