BOLINGBROOK — Relay For Life Bolingbrook and Adventist Bolingbook Hospital are teaming up to aid research for the American Cancer Society’s national cancer prevention study.

The agencies are asking Bolingbrook residents between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study-3. The study seeks to enrol a diverse population of 300,000 people across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital will host the research study from 2 to 5:30 p.m. April 23. Residents who cannot attend the April 23 study also are invited to another CPS-3 session from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. April 17 at Adventist Midwest Health, Tallgrass Corporate Center.

Both dates are for the same CPS-3 same study, covering the same material and questions.

Participants will be asked to fill out an online survey beforehand and disclose information pertaining to lifestyle, behavioral traits and other health factors.

Upon arrival, participants will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief survey, have their waist circumference measured and give a small blood sample.
