CPS-3 (Cancer Preventative Study 3) Enrollee
Cancer Prevention Study – 3 (CPS-3) is a historic study that will help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and other factors that may cause or prevent cancer. Your involvement is one way you can fight back. You can make a difference so that no one has to lose a mother, father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle or close friend.
The study is open to anyone who is willing to commit to the study long-term which means completing periodic follow up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years, is between 30 and 65 years old, and has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer). First enroll online and pick one of six sites in Albuquerque (week of September 9-16), then after registering the enrollment process involves two steps.
- One step takes place at a local enrollment event, where you will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit - 7 teaspoons total). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist.
- The other step takes place at home, where you will complete a more detailed survey. This survey will ask information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to your health. Periodically, you will receive a survey at home to update that information.
