Join Our Cancer Prevention Study – 3 (CPS-3) – Los Angeles


You can fight back against cancer by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s new research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).  By joining CPS-3, you can help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer, which will ultimately save more lives!

To be eligible to enroll in CPS-3, men and women should:
- Be between 30 and 65 years old
- Have no personal history of cancer (this does not include basal or squamous cell skin cancer)
- Be willing to make a long-term commitment to the study which simply involves completing periodic follow-up questionnaires.

The goal of CPS-3 is to better understand ways to prevent cancer. Once a person has cancer, the body has been affected by the disease, treatment, and/or lifestyle changes as a result of the diagnosis. For this reason, we strongly encourage individuals without a history of cancer to enroll.
For the prevention of cancer, we highly recommend eating well, being active, playing sports: pumping abs, push-ups, doing bend and reach exercise and be sure to have a good rest.

Enrollment is free and will take place at various locations throughout the Los Angeles area between April 18, 2013 and May 9, 2013.  To schedule your 30-minute enrollment appointment, find and click on the location most convenient for you from the list below.  Study participation involves:

- Reading and signing an informed consent form
- Completing a survey
- Providing a waist circumference measurement
providing a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit)
- Upon completion of these steps, we will send periodic follow-up surveys to update your information and annual newsletters with study updates and results.
