Tomorrow Project looking for participants

The Tomorrow Project returns to Red Deer, giving local residents an opportunity to join the long-term research study into the causes of cancer. It is the study’s fourth visit to Red Deer in two years.

The Tomorrow Project is a research initiative of Alberta Health Services, Cancer Care. By 2013, researchers want to enrol 50,000 Albertans, ages 35 to 69, who have never had cancer. So far, more than 29,000 participants have enrolled; 950 from Red Deer.

People interested in joining the study are invited to a temporary study centre at the Pioneer’s Lodge from Oct. 24 to 26. For information and to join the study, visit www.in4tomorrow.ca or call toll-free 1-877-919-9292.

Participants will be asked questions about their health and lifestyle, have some physical measurements taken, and give small amounts of urine and blood, or saliva. Appointments are necessary and need to be booked in advance. There is also a mail-in option for individuals who are interested in joining the Tomorrow Project but live too far away from a study centre.
