Henry Schein Cares will again support nonprofit organizations dedicated to fighting cancer through Practice Pink. Now in its fourteenth year, the international company initiative has donated more than $1.7 million toward promoting early cancer detection, improving access to care, and supporting research and prevention efforts.
Along with non-governmental organizations and supplier partners across North America and Europe, Henry Schein said it is helping dental and medical healthcare professionals raise awareness and support for a cure for breast cancer and other cancers by offering a range of pink products, including healthcare consumables, practice supplies, and apparel.
“As part of Henry Schein Cares’ mission, we are dedicated to helping catalyze public-private partnerships and mobilize the resources needed to promote wellness and prevention,” said Stanley Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein.
“Thanks to our dedicated customers and valued supplier partners who have played a large role in making Practice Pink a success, we have collectively helped promote early cancer detection, improved access to care, and provided financial support to further advance the goals of the organizations we support,” Bergman said.
Practice Pink supports US-based organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Cohen Children’s Medical Center of Northwell Health, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering/Henry Schein Cares Women’s Health Center.
In Europe, the program supports organizations such as the Italian League for the Fight Against Cancer, Germany-based Brustkrebs Deutschland eV, and Federacja Stowarzyszeń Amozonki in Poland.
