Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

Residents of Bartow, Chattooga, Floyd, Gordon and Polk Counties are being called upon to participate in a historic study that bears the potential to change the face of cancer for future generations.  According to a joint release from the American Cancer Society and Redmond Regional Medical Center, men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer are needed to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).  CPS-3 will enroll a diverse group of up to a half a million people across the United States and Puerto Rico.  The opportunity for local residents to enroll in the program is being made possible in partnership with Redmond Regional and the Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition during June 28-29, 2012.
