Henry Schein announced the annual launch of its Practice Pink program, an initiative that has raised more than $1.9 million in the past 17 years to support nonprofit organizations dedicated to cancer research and prevention.
Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility program. Through Practice Pink, Henry Schein, together with non-governmental organizations and supplier partners across North America and Europe, 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 variety of pink products, including health care consumables, practice supplies, and apparel, Practice Pink supports important cancer research and prevention efforts.
“At Henry Schein, we strongly believe in the potential of public-private partnerships to contribute to a healthier world, and the Henry Schein Cares Practice Pink program exemplifies this belief,” said Maureen Knott, vice president U.S. supplier initiatives, Henry Schein, and president, Henry Schein Cares Foundation. “Through the combined dedication and generosity of our supplier partners and customers, we will persist in our commitment to advancing cancer research and prevention, all while striving together for a world where cancer is no longer a threat.”
The Practice Pink program supports U.S.-based organizations including the American Cancer Society, Cohen Children’s Medical Center of Northwell Health, and Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The program also supports various organizations in Europe including ALADINA, Cancer Research UK, KiKa, LILT, Odyssea, and others.
