If you’ve ever wondered how you can change the world, here is your chance. We are looking for people to help us create a cancer-free world – a world with more birthdays. You can do that by volunteering for our Cancer Prevention Study-3. Through this study, you can help the American Cancer Society better understand how to prevent cancer and save lives.
It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make an impact on this and future generations.
Southeast Wisconsin will host several enrollment opportunities at a variety of sites from April 25 to May 10, 2013. If you volunteer, you will help us reach our ultimate goal – to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. To schedule your appointment choose an enrollment site below.

in-person enrollment process.)
Upon completion of the enrollment steps, we will continue to mail follow-up surveys every few years to update your information. CPS-3 is not a clinical study, so participants will not receive individual blood test results. If you have specific concerns, you should consult your doctor. We will send annual newsletters to tell you about ongoing research in the Cancer Prevention Studies. And you will know that your continued participation is making a difference in creating a world with more birthdays and less cancer
