Henry Schein Ireland supports cancer awareness and research through its Practice Pink program
Henry Schein is once again offering customers the opportunity to join the company’s fight against cancer through its Practice Pink program to support research, prevention efforts, and early detection of the disease, and to help improve access to care. By purchasing a range of pink products through the Practice Pink program, customers help support the company’s efforts to raise awareness and support a cure for breast cancer and other cancers.
In October, a portion of sales from these pink products is donated to Irish Cancer Society, Ireland’s national cancer charity to support the fight against breast cancer. The Irish Cancer Society’s aim is to improve the lives of those affected by cancer – by funding vital cancer research and providing up-to-date information, plus a range of free services to support breast cancer patients and their families.
Now in its 12th year, the Practice Pink program has globally raised more than $1.5 million for the fight against cancer. In recent years, the program has expanded to Europe, where Team Schein Members have teamed with supplier partners and non-governmental organisations to support people battling cancer. Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility program.
Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, applauded the initiative: “Year after year, our customers and supplier partners overwhelmingly demonstrate their support for the fight against cancer through their participation in Henry Schein’s annual Practice Pink program, and it is rewarding to look back and see what we’ve been able to accomplish together.
“We will continue to support the people and organisations working for a cure, and we look forward to many more years of ‘helping health happen’ together.”
