Henry Schein has long been an advocate for health equity as a fundamental human right. We partner with stakeholders across our global network to promote pathways of opportunity for greater diversity within the healthcare professions, support resilient and integrated health systems, and expand access to quality health care for underserved and underrepresented communities.
As our populations become increasingly more diverse, it is more important than ever to promote diversity and cultural competency in the healthcare professions to ensure that all populations receive quality and culturally competent care.
