Volunteer for the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3)
What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words "you have cancer"?What if you could help save lives from cancer and give people more of their most precious resource: TIME? More time with family and friends, to help create a world with more memories, more celebrations ... and more birthdays.
One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight of a lifetime – the fight to end cancer. Today, we're determined to make this cancer's last century. You can help finish the fight by enrolling in the American Cancer Society's research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
Who can join the study?The study is open to anyone in the United States and Puerto Rico who is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which simply means completing periodic follow up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years, is between 30 and 65 years old, and has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer).
If you don't meet the eligibility requirements, your significant participation comes from telling everyone you know about the opportunity to help prevent cancer.
How can you participate?The enrollment process involves two steps. One step takes place at a local enrollment event, where you will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit - 7 teaspoons total). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist.
The other step takes place at home, where you will complete a more detailed survey. This survey will ask information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to your health. Periodically, you will receive a survey at home to update that information.
