More information on enrolling in the EWM program

You can enroll in the Every Woman Matters Program (EWM) and/or the Nebraska Colon Cancer Screening Program (NCP) by calling (800) 532-2227 to request a Healthy Lifestyle Questionnaire (HLQ) or you can click on the "ENROLL NOW" button below to fill out the online HLQ. 

  • Filling out the HLQ will help EWM and NCP determine what services are best for you.
  • Please be sure to answer all questions.  If you don't we will call you or send the form back and this could delay important health screenings. 
  • Do not make an appointment with your health care provider until you receive a Screening Card from our office for the services that you are eligible for. 
  • If you are not eligible for services, you can still get health education.
