What if you could prevent even one person from hearing the words “you have cancer”?
Volunteer today for a cancer-free tomorrow.
This June, you can fight back against cancer by joining the American Cancer Society’s new research study called the 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 lives.
Providence is hosting two enrollment events.
Noon to 5 p.m., June 11
8 a.m. to 1 p.m., June 12
Providence Office Park-Building 2
4400 NE Halsey St., Portland
Conference rooms 1D and 1G
(Entrance from NE Halsey Street under balloon arch)
Parking is very limited. Use of mass transit is strongly recommended.
Who can join the study?
The study is open to anyone who:
- Is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years
- Is between 30 and 65 years old
- Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)
