CPS-3: Cancer Prevention Study-3
CPS-3 is a large, geographically and racially/ethnically diverse US cohort with participants from all 50 states, DC, and Puerto Rico, and is proudly built on the American Cancer Society’s foundation of strong nationwide community and volunteer support.
CPS-3 data allows ACS researchers to identify lifestyle, environmental, behavioral, and genetic differences between people who get cancer and people who do not get cancer.
CPS-3 data will be used to identify ways to improve quantity and quality of life for the growing number of cancer survivors.
CPS-3 will allow researchers to identify differences in cancer risk and survival based on financial well-being, geography, health insurance status, and race/ethnicity.
Distributing surveys every 3 years allows CPS-3 researchers to gain insight about how the effect of current trend – like e-cigarettes, the COVID-19 pandemic, and inequitable access to healthcare – may be affecting cancer risk, prevention, and survival.
