After overwhelming support, the American Cancer Society in South Dakota is expanding enrollment for its Cancer Prevention Study.
CPS-3 is a national study helping researchers understand the genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that cause or prevent cancer.
The American Cancer Society now has 600 more enrollment slots open for Sioux Falls. Enrollment week is August 14-18. In order to participate in the study, volunteers must be:
Between ages 30-65
Have never been diagnosed with cancer
Commit to participate in the study long-term
At a 20-30 minute enrollment appointment, volunteers will be asked to sign a consent form, have their waist measurement taken, and have a small sample of blood drawn by a trained phlebotomist. Follow-up surveys will be sent to participants every few years.
Go to www.cps3siouxfalls.org to find enrollment sites, dates and times or to register for an enrollment appointment.
