(INDIANAPOLIS) - The American Cancer Society has received support from several Indianapolis-area businesses for a massive cancer prevention study.
The latest research project, called Cancer Prevention Study-3, involves eight central Indiana employers embarking on a recruitment effort. The businesses, including Roche Diagnostics, Eli Lilly and Company, Franciscan St. Francis Health, St. Vincent Cancer Center, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Indiana University Health and East 91st Street Christian Church, are asking area residents to enroll in the study.
Researchers hope to get a better understanding of how lifestyle, genetic and environmental factors cause or prevent cancer.
Enrollment opportunities are available the first week of October. Men and women who are willing to commit to the long-term study must be between the ages of 30 and 65 and never have been diagnosed with cancer.
Appointments can be made by logging onto www.cps3indy.com or by calling 1-877-217-4138.
