CPS-3 Nurse and Volunteer The American Cancer Society’s Epidemiology Research Program is inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer to join a historic research study. The ultimate goal is to enroll 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the United States. The purpose of Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) is to better understand ways to prevent cancer. This multi-year survey will study lifestyle, behavioral, environmental and genetic factors that may cause or prevent cancer with the ultimate goal of eliminating cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations.

Study enrollment takes place at select Relay For Life® events in local communities. CPS Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) is a grassroots effort in which Relay participants from across the country can contribute to cancer research not only through their fund-raising efforts, but also by participating actively in research.

Information about Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) and any upcoming Relay For Life® events where future enrollment will be held is provided at www.cancer.org/cps3.
