What is the Tomorrow Project?
Cancer affects everyone in some way. One out of every two Albertans will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their lifetime. One out of every four people diagnosed with cancer in Alberta will die from it.
The Tomorrow Project is the largest study ever undertaken in Alberta. The goal of the study is to find out more about what causes cancer, so it may be prevented in the future. Information from the Tomorrow Project may also be used to learn more about other long-term health problems.
We are looking for 50,000 Albertans who are 35 to 69, and have never had cancer to join this long-term study.
In 2008, Alberta’s Tomorrow Project joined with other provinces to form The Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project. The study hopes to sign up thousands of Canadians to learn how to prevent cancer and other long-term health problems.
Being part of the Tomorrow Project is a chance to make a difference in the future. The results of the project will be used to help find new ways to prevent cancer and other long-term health problems that will benefit your children and grandchildren.
The Tomorrow Project is supported by Alberta Health Services, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, Alberta Innovates Health Solutions, and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer.
