Cobb residents needed for cancer study

Cobb residents between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer are needed to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Prevention Study-3.

The study is designed to help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.

Residents can enroll March 24-31 at the American Cancer Society office, 1825 Barrett Lakes Blvd. in Kennesaw or at Creekside Centre@Infomart, 1582 Terrell Mill Rd. in Marietta.

The study will ultimately include a half a million people across the country and Puerto Rico.
