CANCER PREVENTION STUDY-3

Research today for a cancer-free tomorrow.
The American Cancer Society’s Epidemiology Research Program is inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer to join a historic research study, Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The ultimate goal is to enroll at least 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the United States. The purpose of CPS-3 is to better understand the lifestyle, behavioral, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and to ultimately eliminate cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations. CPS-3 is a grassroots effort across the country through which you can advance cancer research by participating actively in a historic research study. Participation is easy and enrollment is being brought to Lake County in partnership with the Lake County General Health District, the YMCAs of Lake County, the Lake County Captains, St. John Vianney and the Western Lake Relay For Life. Once you schedule your appointment, you will receive instructions on how to complete your first, most comprehensive survey online. This survey will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. Your on-site enrollment will take 20-30 minutes and will involve:
    Completing a short survey packet Signing a consent form Providing a waist circumference measurement Providing a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit).

Enrollment will be available at the following locations:
       Lake County General Health District – June 26th East End YMCA – June 26th West End YMCA – June 27th Lake County Captains – Classic Park – June 28th Central YMCA – June 29th St. John Vianney – June 30th Eastlake North High School (Western Lake Relay For Life) – July 13th

For more details about enrollment locations, dates and times and to schedule your appointment, visit www.LakeCPS3.org. Following enrollment, you will receive mailed surveys at home every few years to update your information. You will also receive annual study newsletters to update you on research results. Whether or not you are able to enroll, please pass this information on to others in the Lake County area and encourage them to help advance cancer research by enrolling in CPS-3. For more information about CPS-3, please visit www.cancer.org/cps3, email cps3@cancer.org or call toll-free 1.888-604-5888.
