Public Education

 

Our health educators provide tailored health education presentations about breast and cervical cancer and the availability of the free Every Woman Counts (EWC) program for eligible uninsured and low income women.  Reaching medically underserved, high risk older women with education and referrals to care is a special priority for EWC and our staff.  Contact us  directly or call (805) 681-4783 to schedule a presentation. We offer education in English, Spanish, Tagalog, and Mixtec.

 

Call Toll-Free Information Line to Prequalify for EWC

 

Women interested in EWC services may also call the EWC program's toll-free, multilingual eligibility line directly at 1-800-511-2300 to prequalify and receive a referral to a local EWC provider.  The state website has additional information about eligiblity requirements and income guidelines. There is also an on-line clinic locator.
