CPS-3 Enrollment in Jefferson City Exceeds Expectations

Craig Boring presents a plaque to the Goldschmidt Cancer Center for hosting the three-day enrollment for CPS-3

An amazing partnership with Capital Region Medical Center’s Goldschmidt Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society shattered expectations last week enrolling 374 participants into the Cancer Prevention Study-3. More than 40 people walked in without an appointment over the three days of enrollment in Jefferson City, Mo., proving that word of mouth increases participation.

CPS-3 is a grassroots effort where local communities from across the country can support cancer research by participating actively in this historic research study. The goal of CPS-3 is to better understand the factors (lifestyle, environmental, genetic) that cause or prevent cancer and, ultimately, to help eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations.

Many thanks to the staff of Goldschmidt Cancer Center for opening their doors, to the volunteer planning committee and CPS-3 Champions for all of their hard with planning and recruitment, and to our Society staff for executing a successful event.
