NEW BRUNSWICK – The American Cancer Society, The Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) have joined together to support cancer research today for a cancer-free tomorrow.
The partnering organizations seek individuals who have been impacted by cancer or are passionate about helping to discover better ways to prevent, treat, and potentially cure cancer, who are willing to participate in Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
A kick-off event will be held on Tuesday, April 9 from 11 a.m. to noon in RWJUH’s large private dining room, which is located on the second floor of the hospital’s North Building (above the main lobby). RWJUH is located at 1 Robert Wood Johnson Place in New Brunswick.
The study is open to anyone who:
- Is between 30 and 65 years old
- Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)
- Is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home
All the information participants need to know about CPS-3 will be shared at this event. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. The one-hour program follows at 11 a.m.
Caregivers to a cancer patient and those interested in honoring a friend or loved one who has battled cancer are invited to participate in CPS-3. Individuals are encouraged to make a difference by supporting this once-in-a-generation, historic research study.
The partnering organizations will enroll participants beginning on May 22 at RWJUH. For more details, visit www.cps3centralnj.org for more info or call, toll-free, 1-888-604-5888.
