MURRAY, Ky. (6/14/13) – Murray-Calloway County Hospital and the American Cancer Society are teaming up to bring the national Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) to the West KY region on Sept. 19-21. This cancer study will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.
Eligible participants can go online to www.cps3murrayhospital.org to schedule and secure a date and time to enroll. At that time, the participant must complete a comprehensive health history survey. Then at their scheduled appointment, they will fill out a quality control information form, have their waist measured and have a small blood sample drawn by a phlebotomist.
The study is open to anyone who:
• Is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study
• Is between 30 and 65 years old
• Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)
Champions are needed to share the news on how those eligible to be part of this unique cancer study can join and help save lives and create a world with more birthdays. Join us in a champion training to prepare yourself with the tools and knowledge you’ll need.
