American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study-3

The following message is from the American Cancer Society.

"The American Cancer Society is inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer to join a historic research study – Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The purpose of CPS-3 is to better understand the lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors that may prevent and/or cause cancer and to ultimately eliminate this disease as a major health problem for this and future generations. By joining CPS-3, you can help us understand how to prevent cancer, which will save more lives and give people more of their most precious resource: time. More time with their families and friends, more memories, more celebrations … and more birthdays."

Study activities include:

  • reading and signing a consent form
  • completing a survey
  • providing some physical measurements, such as waist size, weight, height, blood pressure, and heart rate
  • giving a small blood sample.


Study participants will receive periodic follow-up surveys and annual newsletters with research updates.
