Volunteers are needed to help save lives from cancer.
St. Mary's of Michigan
is proudly offering you the opportunity to fight cancer by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s new research study, Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
Date: Thursday, August 15
Time: 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Location: St. Mary's of Michigan HEC Lobby, 800 S. Washington
Who can participate: If you are between the ages of 30 and 65 years old and have never been diagnosed with cancer, you are eligible to enroll.
Please register in advance: Go to www.cancer.org/GLBRcps3 to schedule your appointment. The appointment should take approximately 20-30 minutes.
Before your appointment: You will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions to go online and complete your first, most comprehensive survey. This survey will ask you questions regarding medications you are taking, family history of cancer, etc.
At your appointment: You will be asked to sign an informed consent form, complete a brief survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist.
In the future: You will be asked to complete mailed surveys every few years over the next 20-30 years to update lifestyle, medical, and behavioral information. All personal information and any individual results of blood analyses that may be performed will be kept strictly confidential by CPS-3 research staff.
Goal: The ultimate goal of CPS-3 is to enroll men and women from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S. to better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and will save lives.
