Horizon Medical Center and the American Cancer Society are seeking “champions” who will help recruit volunteers for a long-term cancer research study. Horizon Medical Center Marketing Director Betty Weaver said the “champions” will undergo an informal training session with the American Cancer Society next week to be able to go into the community and recruit volunteers for Cancer Prevention Study-3, which is designed to help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer. Weaver said there are no age or other eligibility requirements for the champion recruiters, they just must be able to devote time in the coming weeks to recruiting volunteers. Anyone interested in becoming a champion recruiter for this study should contact Weaver at 326-2350 no later than Monday. The training session will be Thursday, Feb. 21, at Horizon. Enrollment in the cancer study will take place April 23 and volunteers must be 30-65 years old, never have been diagnosed with any form of cancer and be willing to make a long-term commitment to follow-up surveys. “This is a once in a generation opportunity for Americans to participate in life-saving cancer research,” said Horizon CEO John Marshall. “We are excited to offer this opportunity for our associates and the community to make an appointment and enroll in the study at their convenience on April 23.” For more information on the study, visit cps3nashville.org or call Weaver at 326-2350.
