Help the American Cancer Society with cancer prevention study

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Local residents have the chance to be part of a historic study.

It has the potential to change the face of cancer for future generations.

The American Cancer Society hosted a kickoff rally Thursday morning at Olivet Baptist Church.

Men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who've never been diagnosed with cancer will be studied in an effort to better understand the factors that cause or prevent cancer.

The study will include a diverse population of up to half a million people across the United States and Puerto Rico.

Participants will be asked to fill out follow-up surveys every few years for the next 20-30 years.

You can enroll by clicking here from August 21st to the 25th.
