LIVINGSTON, NJ – On Wed April 24, St. Barnabas Health and the American Cancer Society are hosting a kick-off event to help recruit volunteers to participate in a 20-30 year cancer study.  The Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) is a historic nationwide study that explores the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer.

The American Cancer Society’s Department of Epidemiology & Surveillance Research is recruiting 300,000 adults across the U.S. and Puerto Rico in the age bracket of 30 to 65 that have never been diagnosed with Cancer.  Men and women who would like to enroll must provide waist measurements, small blood samples and complete a baseline enrollment survey.  Participants will then be expected to fill out follow-up surveys every few years for the course of 20 to 30 years.

"Of all the studies and things we offer, this has the potential to impact our future children and grandchildren.  Who wouldn't give up one hour to improve the life of their children or grandchildren? People are here today because of the results in CP1,” said Sally Malech, Director of Public Relations at Saint Barnabas.

The event on Wed. April 24, will take place at 10:30 a.m. at Barnabas Health Corporate Headquarters located at, 95 Old Short Hills Rd, West Orange.  Guests will be met by Barry Ostrowsky, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnabas Health, Frank Mascia, Executive Vice President of the American Cancer Society, and Fred Jacobs, MD, JD, Former New Jersey Commissioner of Health and Four-time Cancer Survivor, who will speak to them about the importance and significance of the study.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
