MURRAY, Ky. (7/19/13) – 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 and West TN region on Sept. 19-21. This cancer study will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.
On Wednesday, July 31 a Kickoff Rally will be held at 11 am in the North Tower Lobby of Murray-Calloway County Hospital. Community members and business representatives are encouraged to attend and find out more about how to participate in the study. A goal of 300 participants has been set for this study.
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)
For more information, contact Melissa Ross, Health Promotions Coordinator at 270-762-1832 or to enroll in the Cancer Prevention Study, go online to www.cps3murrayhospital.org.
