What If You Could Personally Participate In Research To Help Determine Factors That Cause Or Prevent Cancer?
The American Cancer Society is working on one of its biggest research projects ever – a ground-breaking study that will have an enormous and lasting impact on the fight against cancer. This landmark nationwide study is called Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). CPS-3 will enroll up to half a million people across the country and will be enrolling new study participants in Baltimore for a very limited time.
Volunteers are needed from the community to help make the study a success.

(Seeking Cancer-Free Adult to Join our Groundbreaking Research Study)
Baltimore will have the rare opportunity to join over 100,000 Americans who have signed up to participate in a historic cancer research study: Cancer Prevention Study-3: (CPS-3).
CPS-3 is a landmark research study that gives individuals who have never been diagnosed with cancer the unique opportunity to advance cancer research by participating first-hand in a groundbreaking research study to help researchers better understand the lifestyle, behavioral, environmental and genetic factors that may cause or prevent cancer.
Participant’s commitment to the study will involve completing periodic follow-up surveys every two years for 20 to 30 years.
During the week of September 9- 15th, Interested and eligible participants will have the chance to enroll in this lifesaving study across Baltimore. Enrollment is being made possible in partnership with MedStar Health, LifeBridge Health, Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Maryland Department of Health & Mental Hygiene, Merritt Athletic Clubs, Empowerment Temple and the University of Maryland.

(Virtual) Community Outreach Volunteers Wanted to Promote CPS-3:
A strong and proactive network of outreach volunteers is needed to help spread the word about CPS-3 Baltimore to their friends, family and social circles to help drive community awareness, participation and enrollment. There is zero fundraising or selling involved and volunteers can work from the comfort of their PCs at home. All Volunteers will be provided with all templates and copy needed to help get the word out. Cancer survivors are strongly encouraged to join.
