St. John’s Riverside Hospital is working with the American Cancer Society on the Cancer Prevention Study-# (CPS-3).  This is one of its biggest research projects ever – a ground-breaking study that will have an enormous impact on our ability to prevent cancer and create more birthdays – and we need your help.  

We are inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have never had cancer to join the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study-3 (or CPS-3). The ultimate goal of this historic research study is to enroll at least 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the United States. CPS-3 will help us better understand what causes cancer and how to prevent it, so we can saves lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Participation is easy!

•    Prior to your appointment you will receive instructions on how to complete your first, most comprehensive survey online. This survey will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete.

Your in-person enrollment will take approximately 20-30 minutes and will involve:

•    Completing a brief survey
     
•    Signing a consent form
     
•    Providing a waist circumference measurement
     
•    Providing a small blood sample (similar to a doctor's visit)

*Following enrollment, you will receive mailed surveys at home every few years to update your information. You will also receive annual study newsletters to update you on research results.

On Friday, November 9, 2012 from 12 noon – 4:00pm St. John’s will be a host site for those who qualify and wish to enroll in the Cancer Prevention Study-3.  Enrollment will take place at the Andrus Pavilion location: 967 North Broadway; Yonkers, N.Y. 10701 in the Conference Room located on the Main Floor.
