Natural Awakenings Northwest Florida

Exciting Health Study Opportunity Available

Jan 31, 2013 10:21AM

Residents of Pensacola have an unprecedented opportunity to participate in an American Cancer Society cancer prevention study from March 14 to 22. Men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 that have never been diagnosed with cancer are needed.

Local enrollment is made possible by partnerships with Baptist Hospital, Sacred Heart Hospital, West Florida Hospital and The Woodlands Medical Specialists. The study intends to enroll a diverse population of up to half a million people across the United States and Puerto Rico.

To enroll in the study, individuals will go to a local enrollment location and will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form; complete a brief survey; have their waist circumference measured; and give a small blood sample.

At home, they will complete a survey packet on lifestyle, behavioral and other factors related to their health. Upon completion of this process, the Society will continue to send periodic follow-up surveys to update participant information and annual newsletters with study updates and results. The initial and follow-up surveys completed at home will take an hour or less to complete and are expected to be sent every few years.
