The third Cancer Prevention Study of the American Cancer Society will be enrolling participants at the Newcomerstown Relay For Life at Lee Stadium on Friday, June 17 from 5 to 9 p.m. this year only.

Individuals who choose to participate will complete a brief questionnaire, give a waist measurement and a small blood sample. Shortly after the in-person enrollment, participants will receive a more comprehensive survey at home. From that point forward, study participants will be followed over time to update information via periodic, mailed surveys. Your involvement in CPS-3 will help American Cancer Society researchers understand the causes of, and ultimately determine ways to prevent cancer.

If you are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study (which involves completing follow-up surveys periodically over the next 20-30 years), are between the ages of 30 and 65 years old and have never been diagnosed with cancer, then you will want to participate in this study. If you don't meet the eligibility requirements, your significant participation comes from telling everyone you know about the opportunity to help prevent cancer.
