MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - What if you could prevent one person from hearing the words "you have cancer?" Or help create a world with more birthdays? You can!
The American Cancer Society is conducting a research study and needs your help. Glenda Davis stopped by Daybreak to tell us how you can save lives by participating in the Cancer Prevention Study-3.
The study is looking at environment and individuals' lifestyle changes. It's part of the organization's work effort to eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations.
To participate, you must be between 30 and 65 years old and have never been diagnosed with cancer, not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer. You will complete a survey, provide a waist circumference measurement, and give a small blood sample. You will also complete follow up surveys at home for the next 20 to 30 years.
Enrollment dates are Saturday, November 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Galleria Mall, Tuesday, November 19 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Central Georgia Technical College Warner Robins campus, and Wednesday, November 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m at the Robins Federal Credit Union on Watson Boulevard.
