The American Cancer Society has chosen the Triad as one site for a national study that will look for potential links between cancer and everyday environmental and lifestyle factors. Wanted for the study: Men and women in Forsyth, Guilford and Randolph counties between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer.
In Forsyth County: An information session will be held this Thursday (DEC 6) from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the headquarters of Truliant Federal Credit Union in Winston-Salem.
This February: Calvary Baptist Church and Winston Salem First Assembly Church are participating in the sign-up initiative, which will involve a 30-minute appointment. Before the appointment, participants will be asked to submit answers about medications they are taking, family history of cancer, lifestyle and other behaviors. Also, some physical measurements and a small blood sample must be given. Later, they will be sent a more comprehensive survey to complete at home and then contacted every two or three years with follow-up questions.
