Downloadable Nudges

Nudge notes, coupons and straight-up bribes. There are all kinds of ways to nudge someone into a cancer screening. Here are a bunch of ideas to print out, customize and strategically place so your target will get your drift.

Social Nudges

Take your nudge game public with a well-timed social nudge. Choose a message and customize it to make it your own, or leave it as is. Once your nudge hits their social feeds, don’t be surprised if it goes viral and friends and followers join in the nudging.


Peruse our gallery of ideas for inspiration. Feel free to post, share, email, text or loudly read them to your friends—whatever it takes to get the cancer screening point across. Some of the best nudges come from our community, so if you created a clever nudge of your own, add it to the gallery.

Highmark covers most preventive cancer screenings at 100%

Highmark plans cover a variety of cancer screenings, including ones that just might save your life.
  • Colon: Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths. Get screened starting at age 50 (or as recommended by your doctor).
  • Breast: Mammograms are the most important screening test for breast cancer. If you’re a woman over 40, get screened every year (or as recommended by your doctor).
  • Lung: This is most important for smokers and former smokers older than 55. Consult with your doctor about the right screening for you.
