The American Cancer Society York is looking for volunteers to help enroll participants in a new study in September.

The York office will host a 30-minute kickoff 8 a.m. July 30 at Sovereign Bank Stadium in York. According to a news release, the mini-program will provide attendees with information to help educate the community about Cancer Prevention Study-3.

The study
is open to men and women 30 to 65 years old who have no personal history of cancer. The ACS aims to enroll at least 300,000 adults from various racial and ethnic backgrounds from across the US.

The ACS also will host an enrollment event Sept. 17.
