From October 2012 to June, the health care system assisted in encouraging more than 800 individuals to enroll in this long-term study aimed at better understanding the factors that cause or prevent cancer, making Barnabas Health the largest CPS-3 enrollment effort in New Jersey. At the June 11 enrollment held at Community Medical Center, 225 people were enrolled making it the single largest enrollment site in New Jersey within a four hour period.
