Spokane area residents can help battle cancer | Health
This is your chance to actively participate in the fight against cancer. As the American Cancer Society celebrates its 100th birthday, the organization hopes the Spokane community will step up and celebrate by participating in a historic cancer prevention research study.
In the Spokane region, the ACSociety is looking for 500 participants for the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The study will give researchers a better understanding of cancer causes and prevention. Qualified participants include local men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 from various racial/ethnic backgrounds with no personal diagnosis of cancer.
The Spokane community is invited to participate in the role of “community champion” recruiting study participants by attending a luncheon for CPS-3 Champions where they’ll learn more about how the study works, the impact that past cancer prevention studies have had and what the Society is expecting from this upcoming study.
CPS-3 Community Champions Kickoff Luncheon
When: July 11, 2013
Where: Red Lion Hotel at the Park, Skyline Ballroom
Signing up for the study requires a one-time in-person visit to read and sign a consent form, complete a survey, have your waist measured and give a small non-fasting blood sample, similar to what you’d do during a routine doctor visit. A detailed survey and follow-up surveys will follow.
