Volunteers sought for cancer prevention study

From page A4 | February 26, 2013 |

The American Cancer Society is holding a Kickoff for Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3), a large-scale, long-term study looking at the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.

The society is looking for a host of “community champions,” who will spread the word about enrollment opportunities locally, and help recruit new volunteers to join the study. Training and materials will be provided.

Men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer are needed to enroll in the study. They will be among 300,000 enrollees of diverse backgrounds from across the United States.

The kickoff will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the United Methodist Church of Davis, 1620 Anderson Road. Enrollees can sign up thereafter; appointments are available online at greatersacramentocps3.org.

To enroll in the study, individuals will go to a local enrollment location and will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form; complete a brief survey, have their waist circumference measured; and give a small blood sample. The in-person enrollment process takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

Upon completion of this process, the society will send periodic follow-up surveys to update participant information and annual newsletters with study updates and results. The initial and follow-up surveys completed at home will take an hour or less to complete and are expected to be sent every few years.

To learn more, visit cancer.org/cps3, email cps3@cancer.org or call 888-604-5888.
