CPS-3 Wichita Falls Enrollment

Posted: Updated:

The American Cancer Society is calling on adults, ages 30 - 65, who have never had cancer (excluding basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma), to enroll in the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) to determine how certain factors work together to cause or prevent cancer, including genetics, lifestyle, and environment.

The Wichita Falls enrollment will take place on Sunday, November 24 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. inside the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church. The church is located at 909 10th Street at Travis.

Participants must be willing to give a small blood sample, be measured and commit to completing periodic surveys at home for a 20 year period.

The study is conducted with the hope of saving future generations from cancer, unlock its mystery, and create a world with more birthdays.

Regan Nabors, a local representative with the American Cancer Society, was a guest on Newschannel 6 Sunday Morning to recruit participants for CPS-3. Watch her live interview above to learn more information.

To schedule your enrollment appointment, visit cancerstudyTX.org or call (888) 604-5888.
