Around North Hagerstown
May 20, 2013
Haven Lutheran Church and the American Cancer Society are fighting back against cancer by hosting enrollment at the church for a new research study titled Cancer Prevention Study-3.
Area residents can help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and life-style factors that cause or prevent cancer.
If you are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home, are between 30 and 65 years old, and have never been diagnosed with cancer (not including skin cancer), you might wish to enroll in the study.
Enrollment will take place at Haven Lutheran Church’s gathering room on Wednesday, July 10, from 3 to 7 p.m.
The enrollment process involves setting up an appointment by going to www.CPS3WashingtonCounty.org and completing a survey before your appointment. At the appointment, participants will be asked to complete a short enrollment survey, have their waist circumference measured and provide a small blood sample. Appointments last approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
