Lacey Evans' Cancer Study Journey
A few weeks ago Lacey Evans enrolled in the CPS-3 study
for the American Cancer Society
. ACS is following hundreds of thousands of people across the country to find the links between lifestyle and cancer. Step 1 of the process was a short, online health survey. Step 2 was a brief, in person appearance where volunteers took a waist measurement and a blood sample. Step 3 hasn't begun yet, but the ACS tells Lacey it will involve short health and lifestyle surveys that she'll get in the mail every year or so, for the next few decades. The ACS is still looking for participants and there are more enrollment opportunities. There will be several in Vancouver
this August and more in Portland in October.
