Volunteers sought for cancer study

What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words: “You have cancer”?

 On August 6-10 in the Conway area, volunteers are needed to fight cancer by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s new research study, Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The ultimate goal of CPS-3 is to enroll men and women from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S. to better understand the lifestyle, environment and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and will save lives. 

Volunteers are being sought who are between the ages of 30 and 65 years old and who have never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer). Appointments will be held as follows:

  • Tues Aug 6; 7a-11a – Conway Regional Medical Center
  • Wed, Aug 7; 9a-1p – Greenbrier City Event Center
  • Wed, Aug 7; 12p-4p – Conway Public Library
  • Thurs, Aug 8; 9a-1p – Antioch Baptist Church
  • Thurs, Aug 8; 3p-7p – Conway Regional Medical Center
  • Sat, Aug 10; 8a-12p – Antioch Baptist Church

How to get involved:

  1. Sign up and schedule an appointment for one of the above dates by clicking here or call 1.888.604.5888
