CPS-3

Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3)

 

If You Could Save Lives... Would You?

You have the power to help save lives by participating in the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). We are inviting men and women, 30 - 65 years of age, who have never been diagnosed with cancer to join this historic study. The purpose of CPS-3 is to better understand factors that cause or prevent cancer and to ultimately eliminate cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations.

Participation is easy, involving only two steps.

1. Enroll at one of the local events below*. Participants are encouraged to register at: www.seeuthere.com/cps3enroll/mercycancercenter

2. Fill out mailed surveys at home every few years to update your information.

* Read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide a wait circumference measurement and a small blood sample, taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist.
