American Cancer Society looking for study participants

Participants are needed for a national study to help the American Cancer Society understand how lifestyle, genetics and the environment affect cancer. Those interested may enroll in the study April 30 or May 1 at the Center for Advanced Medicine on the Washington University Medical Campus.

Participants in the ACS’s Cancer Prevention Study (CPS-3) must be age 30 to 65 and never have been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer). Participation involves completing a brief written survey, giving a small blood sample and providing some physical measurements. Every few years, participants will receive a brief electronic survey asking them to update personal information.

Those interested in enrolling are asked to schedule an appointment at or by calling (888) 604-8888. Appointments will be scheduled 1-5:30 p.m. April 30 and 7-11:30 a.m. May 1.
