San Mateo County is hosting five siteswhere residents can participate in a historic20-year cancer prevention study looking athow factors like race, behavior and the envi-ronment can cause or prevent the deadly dis-ease.Study participants can enroll at one of fivelocations between July 22 and Aug. 5. Thecommitment is an initial comprehensivesurvey and 20- to 30-minute appointment atwhich blood and waist circumference meas-ures are taken followed by 45 minutes everyother year to update the research team onhealth and habits, according to theAmerican Cancer Society.The study seeks to enroll 300,000 menand women between the ages of 30 and 65who have never been diagnosed with cancerand come from a variety of racial ethnicbackgrounds across the United States. Thegoal is enrolling at least 25 percent minori-ty individuals. In 2013, the society projectsmore than 1.6 million people nationallywill be diagnosed with cancer and San MateoCounty is not immune — more than 3,545of those individuals are local.As a result, study organizers selected asenrollment sites the Palo Alto MedicalFoundation Mills-Peninsula Division,Stanford Hospital and Clinics, PeninsulaChinese Alliance Church, Sobrato Centerfor Nonprofits and the Martin Luther KingJr. Community Center.There are no other studies of this size andfocused on race and ethnicity currentlyunderway in the United States, according tothe American Cancer Society’sEpidemiology Research Program.The study’s longevity is also a key factor,allowing researchers to track young adultswho tend to be more transient and individu-als over 65 who would otherwise have torecall past behavior and lifestyle informa-tion which can challenge accuracy.County officials hope to help drum up sup-port.On Tuesday, Board of SupervisorsPresident Don Horsley will introduce a reso-lution proclaiming July 20123 as CancerPrevention Month in San Mateo County andencouraging residents to take part in thestudy.
