Residents of Danbury and the surrounding communities, have an unprecedented opportunity to participate in a historic cancer prevention study that has the potential to change the face of cancer for future generations.
The Cancer Prevention Study 3 is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and will examine lifestyle, genetics and environmental factors and help to understand what causes and prevents cancer from occuring.
To participate as a Study Participant on June 2nd you must be:
- Between the ages of 30 and 65

The entire process will take around one hour.
