Barnabas Health Behavioral Health Center, a Barnabas Health facility, was recently honored by the American Cancer Society (ACS) for its participation in ACS’s nationwide research study, Cancer Prevention Study - 3 (CPS-3).
Barnabas Health facilities teamed-up with the American Cancer Society to enroll volunteers in the historic, nationwide CPS-3 to help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer. Barnabas Health implemented the largest enrollment effort in New Jersey, encouraging more than 800 individuals to participate in the long-term study.
The CPS-3 is a grassroots effort developed by the American Cancer Society to support cancer research by enrolling 300,000 adults from various racial and ethnic backgrounds from across the United States. By enrolling in the study at Community, Kimball or Monmouth Medical Center, the residents of Ocean and Monmouth counties have a chance to participate in lifesaving cancer research.
