Announcing Practice Pink Campaign Against Cancer
Initiative that has raised more than $1.9 million in the past 17 years
Henry Schein today announced the annual launch of its Practice Pink® programme, an initiative that has raised more than $1.9 million in the past 17 years to support nonprofit organisations dedicated to cancer research and prevention.
Practice Pink is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the Company’s global 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 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.
We strongly believe in the potential of public-private partnerships to contribute to a healthier world
As part of the company’s participation in the Practice Pink™ programme, Henry Schein Dental and Medical in the UK donates a percentage of the company’s sales in October and November from selected pink products to Cancer Research UK to support the organisation’s work in research, prevention efforts, early detection of the disease, and improving access to care.
The Practice Pink programme also supports U.S.-based organisations including the American Cancer Society, Cohen Children’s Medical Center of Northwell Health, and Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The programme also supports various organisations around the world including ALADINA (Spain), KiKa (The Netherlands), LILT (Italy), Odyssea (France), and others.
“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 programme 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.”
