Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) of the American Cancer Society has an opportunity for Charles County residents to join the scientific community in finding the next great breakthroughs in cancer research.

The American Cancer Society's Epidemiology Research Program is inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer to join CPS-3.  The ultimate goal is to enroll at least 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S.

WHEN & WHERE: Tuesday, March 19, 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM Where The Greater Waldorf Jaycees Community Center 3090 Crain Highway Waldorf, MD 20601 Wednesday, March 20, 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM Bel Alton High School Community Development Center 9501 Crain Highway Bel Alton, MD 20611.

WHY: Previous American Cancer Society cancer prevention studies have been instrumental in helping identify major factors affecting cancer risk. CPS-3 holds the best hope of identifying new and emerging cancer risks, and can only be accomplished if members of the community are willing to become involved.

ABOUT the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society's efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress nearly 14 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. As we mark our 100th birthday in 2013, we're determined to finish the fight against cancer. We're finding cures as the nation's largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more. For more information, to get help, or to join the fight, call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.cancer.org
