Mayor boosts national cancer study effort

 Jackson Mayor Harvey Johnson speaks out in support of the national Cancer Prevention Study 3 (CPS-3) while Dr. Gail Megason, professor of pediatric hematology and oncology, looks on during a press conference Feb. 8 in the UMMC Conference Center at the Jackson Medical Mall Thad Cochran Center. The study seeks to enroll approximately 1,000 Jackson-area residents who have never had cancer. Participants will receive periodic surveys throughout the next 20-30 years, which will help scientists understand factors contributing to cancer. For more information about CPS-3, visit http://www.cps3jackson.org.
