You Could Help Stop Cancer!
Are you cancer-free and between the ages of 30 and 65? You could help save lives by doing little more than filling out some surveys!
Barnabas Health is looking for volunteers to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3)
The study is open to anyone who is willing to commit to long-term, periodic follow up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years.
Simply sign up at a local enrollment event or online, complete a brief written survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample, and the rest is done from your home, where you will complete a more detailed survey about lifestyle, behavior, and other factors related to your health. Then, periodically, you will simply receive more surveys at home to update that information.
Then you can tell everyone you know that you are helping to save lives threatened by cancer. That’s right…you can literally help change the world by participating in this study.
Your help will enable a better understanding of how genetics, the environment and lifestyle affect cancer and how we can better prevent it.
Past studies like this have led to the link between smoking, secondhand smoke, and cancer, the link between larger waist size and increased cancer, the link of obesity and cancer, the benefit of regular physical activity in relation to cancer, and more!
Confidentiality is of the utmost important and every effort will be make to protect your privacy with multiple procedures in place to safeguard personal information.
Upcoming chances for you to bring your friends and sign up for this amazing opportunity to help stop cancer include:
Tues. June 11, 2013, 8 am – Noon at Community Medical Center in Toms River, Thursday, June 13, 2013, 10 am – 2 pm ad Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood, and Wed. June 12, 2013, 9 am – 1 pm at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.
