You could potentially be a part of preventing cancer. A local effort is starting up to get Lubbock involved in a national cancer prevention study by the American Cancer Society.

CPS-3, as the 20-year study is known, will enter the recruitment phase locally on April 2 with a kickoff lunch. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to attend by purchasing tickets for $15 or $120 for a table of eight. The featured speaker at the event will be Dr. Tedd Mitchell, president of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

Lubbock Board Chair and lead volunteer Randy Christian said the enrollment goal for the Lubbock area is 1,000 participants. Eligible participants must be between the ages of 30 and 65, have no personal history of cancer (not including non-melanoma skin cancer), and must be willing to commit.
