Henry Schein is now accepting applications for its Global Product Donation Program, which provides selected medical and dental organizations with a broad array of healthcare products and supplies to support their efforts to expand access to care for the underserved.
Each recipient will receive two or more donations of products over the course of two years, with a total fair market value ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. The deadline to apply for the 2020 program is August 15, 2019.
The program is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, which aims to expand access to healthcare for underserved and at risk populations around the world by promoting wellness, prevention, treatment, and education; providing emergency preparedness and relief; and building healthcare capacity.
“For 20 years, the Global Product Donation Program has been a wonderful opportunity for Henry Schein to build capacity by supporting community health organizations who share our commitment in expanding access to care through wellness and prevention and providing relief in times of disaster,” said Jennifer Kim Field, vice president, corporate social responsibility, Henry Schein.
“Team Schein is pleased to once again offer assistance to organizations dedicated to providing care for people who might otherwise go without,” said Field.
