The legal team at Blume Forte recently learned through an announcement from Barnabas Health in West Orange and the American Cancer Society, that they are seeking volunteers to take part in the nationwide Cancer Prevention Study (CPS-3). NJ.com is reporting that the study aims to better understand the lifestyle, genetic, and environmental factors that either may prevent or cause cancer.
The study is taking place in 35 states throughout the country and will be based on a series of surveys, blood samples, and waist measurements that volunteers will take over the course of several years. Two previous Cancer Prevention Studies have taken place in the country, with one lasting from 1959 to 1972 and the second beginning in 1982 and still ongoing.
The study is looking for men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years old that have never been diagnosed with cancer. CPS-3 will enroll a total of 300,000 people from across the United States. Barnabas Health will be holding various enrollment sessions in New Jersey during June. These times are:
- June 11 from 10 am to 2 pm
Clara Maass Medical Center, Cancer Center, 1 Clara Maass Dr., Belleville, NJ
