Volunteers wanted for a large, long-term cancer prevention study by the American Cancer Society!

If you’re between 30 and 65 and have never been diagnosed with cancer, you may be able to join CPS-3 (Cancer Prevention Study 3), an ambitious study that will help shed light on cancer prevention. 

As a volunteer, you will help the American Cancer Society better understand how lifestyle behaviors like diet and exercise, genetic, and the environment affect cancer

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to actually be a part of helping prevent cancer,” said one CPS-3 volunteer. “Enrollment is easy. You just have to sign a form, fill out a short survey and give a small blood sample. What you get in return is knowing you’re helping save lives down the road.”

Here’s how to enroll:
