Mitch Henderson, the Franklin C. Cappon-Edward G. Green '40 head coach of Princeton men's basketball, spoke Wednesday, April 17 at the University Medical Center Princeton at Plainsboro as the American Cancer Society promotes its Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) intiative.

The American Cancer Society is seeking to enroll 300,000 people between the ages of 30 and 65 from various racial and ethnic backgrounds in the study, which will seek to determine the risks that lead to cancer. Participants must never have been diagnosed with cancer.

Sign-up requires a one-time visit to read and sign a consent form, complete a survey and have measurements and a blood sample taken. Participants will receive periodic surveys over the next 20-30 years. For more information, visit www.cps3centralnj.org.

The appearance is one in a series of contributions Henderson has made as part of the ongoing Coaches vs. Cancer effort. Shortly after his 2011 hiring, he appeared at Yankee Stadium and helped ring the NASDAQ closing bell with the organization, and he return to the exchange's stage with Coaches vs. Cancer this past January.
