Sign up for a national cancer study being taken locally

A massive national cancer study is taking place right now.

Researchers are taking a sample of 300,000 U.S. residents and for the next few days they will be in the Greater Evansville area looking for local participants.

The Cancer Prevention Study-3 or CPS-3 is being put on by the American Cancer Society.

Researchers are going to be at four different Evansville locations until Thursday and the first one is at the Washington Avenue Church of Christ at 4001 Washington Avenue in Evansville from 4-7:30 p.m.

The study is looking for men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer.

The study needs 600 people from this area, so far 400 have signed up.

Researchers hope this study will help them better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.

Organizers suggest you enroll online.  

However, if you chose to enroll onsite, the process takes about 20-30 minutes.

On Wednesday researchers will be at the YMCA downtown at 222 Northwest 6th Street in Evansville from 7-10:30 a.m.

Also on Wednesday, researchers will be at the Old National Bank at 1 Main Street in Evansville from 11-2:30 p.m.

On Thursday, they will be at the Dunigan YMCA at 6846 Oak Grove Road in Evansville from 3-6:30 p.m.

    Mesker Park Zoo has a new attraction open, and no, it's not a new animal.  It's the new Englebrecht Carousel. A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday.
