Research for cancer-free tomorrow
We all want to know we have made a difference in the life of another. This year, our community has a unique opportunity to make an impact on the lives of many. The third Cancer Prevention Study of the American Cancer Society will be enrolling participants at Redwood Regional Medical Group in Santa Rosa on Nov. 3, 7 and 9.
As part of enrollment, individuals who choose to participate will simply fill out a comprehensive survey packet about health history, provide a small blood sample (to be collected by trained phlebotomists) and provide a waist measure. Enrollment will take approximately 45 to 60 minutes. 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 to 30 years), are between the ages of 30 and 65, 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. To make an appointment to enroll, visit CPS3sonomacounty.org or call 888-604-5888 to learn more about the difference you can personally make in the fight against cancer.
