Henry Schein’s Practice Pink programme celebrates 15th anniversary fighting cancer
Since its inception, Practice Pink has raised more than $1.7 million for cancer research, prevention, and awareness efforts.
Henry Schein announced the 15th anniversary of its Practice Pink programme. This supports nonprofit organisations dedicated to the fight against cancer.
Practice Pink is a global initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s corporate social responsibility programme.
Through Practice Pink, Henry Schein, together with non-governmental organisations and supplier partners across North America and Europe, is helping dental and medical healthcare professionals raise awareness and support for a cure for breast cancer and other cancers. It’s offering customers an array of pink products, including healthcare consumables, practice supplies, and apparel.
To date, Henry Schein has raised more than $1.7 million through Practice Pink.
Supporting Cancer Research UK
‘We at Henry Schein are committed to aligning our strengths as a business with the needs of society to improve global health, and developing public-private partnerships to help provide care for those in need,’ said Stanley M Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein.
‘Together with our valued supplier partners and customers, we are collectively helping to support efforts in promoting early cancer detection, improving access to care, and also advancing cancer research and prevention.’
As part of the company’s participation in the Practice Pink programme, Henry Schein Dental UK donates a percentage of the company’s sales in October and November from selected pink products to Cancer Research UK. This is to support the organisation’s work in research, prevention efforts, early detection, and improving access.
Cancer Research UK wants the survival rate of cancer patients 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
- Optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective.
The organisation’s work is funded solely by donations.
