ACS cancer prevention study - enroll today
April 11, 2013 College News - Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin are participating in the third national Cancer Prevention Study (CPS-3) of the American Cancer Society which is currently enrolling participants at locations around the state, including:
F/MCW: May 3, from 12-4 p.m. (conf. room M in the Clinical Cancer Center)
Community Memorial Hospital: April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
St. Joseph's Hospital (West Bend): May 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The ultimate goal of CPS-3 is to enroll men and women of various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S. to participate in a study that will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and will save lives.
American Cancer Society studies began in the 1950s and have led to important discoveries such as the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer and the role obesity plays in the risk of several cancers. The new CPS-3 will help researchers build on evidence from previous studies, and help bring us closer to eliminating cancer as a major health burden for this and future generations.
