Henry Schein’s Practice Pink in 13th year
Now in its 13th Year, Practice Pink has raised more than $1.6M for Cancer Research, Prevention, and Awareness Efforts
Henry Schein today (19th September) announced that it will again support non-profit organisations dedicated to the fight against cancer through its Practice Pink™ programme. Through the programme, now in its 13th year, Henry Schein has donated more than $1.6 million towards promoting early cancer detection, improving access to care, and research and prevention efforts.
Along with non-governmental organisations and supplier partners across North America and Europe, Henry Schein is helping dental and medical health care professionals raise awareness and support for a cure for breast cancer and other cancers by offering its customers a range of ‘pink’ products, including health care consumables, practice supplies, and apparel.
In October, a portion of Henry Schein Dental UK’s sales from these pink products is donated to Cancer Research UK to support research, prevention efforts, and early detection of the disease, and to help improve access to care. Cancer Research UK wants survival in the UK to be among the best in the world.
The organisation focuses its efforts in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective. The organisation’s work is funded solely by donations.
“The fight against cancer is everyone’s fight, and it is only by joining together and leveraging our collective strengths that our efforts will have the greatest effect,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein.
“We at Team Schein thank our customers and supplier partners for their support of the Practice Pink program, and we look forward to continuing to work toward our shared goal of a world free of cancer.”
Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the Company’s global corporate social responsibility programme.
