Solano County residents have a historic opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be personally involved in research that will advance our understanding of the lifestyle, behavioral, environmental and genetic factors that cause cancer.
I am asking members of our community to join me in learning more about this American Cancer Society research study by attending the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) kickoff. It will take place at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Solano Board of Realtors, 1302 Springs Road, Vallejo.
The society is looking for community members who are interested in enrolling in CPS-3 along with a host of “community champions” who will spread the word about enrollment opportunities locally and help recruit new volunteers to join the study. An American Cancer Society community champion is a person who is willing to talk to friends, family, co-workers and the community about enrolling in the study. Community champions will be trained and given recruitment materials.
The study is open to anyone who is between 30 and 65 years of age, has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basel and squamous cell skin cancer) and is willing to make a long-term committment to the study. This commitment just involves completing follow-up surveys at home.
To RSVP for the CPS-3 kickoff, please end an email to Brandy.Davis@cancer.org. To learn more about CPS-3, visit www.cancer.org/cps3, email email@example.com or call toll-free 1-888-604-5888.
The mission of the American Cancer Society is to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. Let’s help them do it.
