CPS-3 in Lake County, Ohio

What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words “you have cancer”?

This year, you can fight back against cancer by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s 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.

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
Is between 30 and 65 years old
Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)

How can you participate?

Schedule an appointment to enroll now.

After you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to a comprehensive survey on your family history, lifestyle, medications, and other factors related to your health. This takes about 45 minutes to fill out. Please complete this before your appointment.


What happens at my appointment?

At your enrollment, it will take just 20-30 minutes to:
Read and sign an informed consent form

Complete a short survey packet
Have your waist circumference measured
Give a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit). The blood sample will be drawn by a trained, certified phlebotomist.

Upon completion of these two steps, we will send periodic follow-up surveys to update your information and annual newsletters with study updates and results.
