Your Health: Cancer Study Deadline Approaching
Published October 3rd, 2013
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Time is running out to help make a difference. The deadline is approaching to become part of the cancer prevention study known as CPS-3
North Florida Regional Medical Center and the West Marion Community Hospital are in a race to the finish line to sign up 350 volunteers this month.
To date, 322 people have signed up.
The study furnished by the American Cancer Society will follow 300,000 people nationwide over their lifetime hoping to shed light on lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors, that can both contribute to - and prevent - cancer.
Some of the people helping with the study say the time and effort required is minimal after initially signing up.
North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville and West Marion Community Hospital in Ocala are the two sites in North Central Florida participating in the study. You must be between 30 to 65 years old and never have had cancer before.
