Since its inception, Practice Pink has raised more than 1.7 million US Dollar for cancer research, prevention, and awareness efforts

Henry Schein announced the 15th anniversary of its Practice Pink® programme supporting 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 health care professionals raise awareness and support for a cure for breast cancer and other cancers by offering its customers an array of pink products, including health care consumables, practice supplies, and apparel. To date, Henry Schein has raised more than $1.7 million through Practice Pink.

“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 Chief Executive Officer 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 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 to support the organisation’s work in research, prevention efforts, early detection of the disease, and improving access to care.

Cancer Research UK wants the survival rate of cancer patients in the UK to be among the best in the world. The organisation focuses their efforts in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective. The organisation’s work is funded solely by donations.
