We all want to know we have made a difference in the life of another. This year our community has a unique opportunity to make an impact on the lives of many.
The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers to participate in the third Cancer Prevention Study and will be enrolling participants at Hackensack University Medical Center and Holy Name Medical Center during April 16-19, 2013. Volunteers who choose to participate will simply fill out a comprehensive survey packet about health history, provide a small blood sample (to be collected by trained phlebotomists) and provide a waist measure. Enrollment will take just 20-30 minutes. You’ll then be followed over time to update information via periodic, mailed surveys. Your involvement in will help American Cancer Society researchers understand causes and, ultimately, help determine ways to prevent cancer.
If you are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study (over the next 20-30 years), are between the ages of 30 and 65 years old, and have never been diagnosed with cancer, then you’ll want to participate!
If you don’t meet the eligibility requirements, you can still volunteer by helping to spread the word to others about this unique opportunity to help prevent cancer!
