Researchers with the American Cancer Society are looking for participants in the Triad to help with an important research study that could one day help define ways to prevent cancer.
Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) is the organization’s latest research study that will explore the environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer.
The study is open to anyone 30-65 years old who has never had cancer, not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer.
They are looking for dedicated participants because the study will take place over the next two to three decades.
“You will first come on site, complete a brief survey, have your waist measured, and then have four small vials of blood drawn at that time by certified phlebotomists,” explained Lisa Bottomley, a Mission Delivery Director with the American Cancer Society.
