MELVILLE, N.Y.—Henry Schein has announced that it is again offering its customers the opportunity to join the company's fight against cancer through its Practice Pink program. By purchasing a range of pink products through the program, customers help support the company's efforts to raise awareness and support a cure for breast cancer and other cancers.
From September through December, a portion of sales from these pink products—including health care consumables, practice supplies, and apparel—is donated to nonprofit organizations to support research, prevention efforts, and early detection of the disease, and to help improve access to care.
Now in its 12th year, the Practice Pink program has raised more than $1.5 million for the fight against cancer. In recent years, the program has expanded to Europe, where Team Schein Members have teamed with supplier partners and nongovernmental organizations to support people battling cancer. Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company's global corporate social responsibility program.
"Year after year, our customers and supplier partners overwhelmingly demonstrate their support for the fight against cancer through their participation in Henry Schein's annual Practice Pink program, and it is rewarding to look back and see what we've been able to accomplish together," said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Henry Schein. "We will continue to support the people and organizations working for a cure, and we look forward to many more years of 'helping health happen' together."
The Practice Pink program supports U.S.-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 Cancer Center. In Europe, the program supports organizations such as the Irish Cancer Society, Germany-based Verein Brustkrebs Deutschland e.V., and Stichting Kinkeren Kankervrij in The Netherlands.
