Stockbridge, Ga. (April 26, 2013) – Piedmont Henry Hospital held the biggest enrollment session for the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3), helping to make Atlanta the largest metro area in terms of enrollment throughout the nation.
Last month, 71 people signed up at Piedmont Henry to become part of the CP-3. In all, 2,600 people signed up at the 39 enrollment sites around metro Atlanta. For its efforts, the American Cancer Society presented Piedmont Henry with a plaque.
“Prevention is key to beating most diseases, especially cancer,” said XX, Piedmont Henry. “We’re proud to have taken part in this initiative and hope the study’s findings will help us better understand what causes cancer and how we can keep it from affecting our loved ones in the future.”
The CPS-3 is open to men and women who are between 30 and 65 years old, have never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer) and are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home.
Participants in the study can help the American Cancer Society better understand how to prevent cancer. To learn more about the CPS-3 study, visit cancer.org/cps3. For more information on cancer services available at Piedmont Henry Hospital, visit piedmonthenry.org.
