Henry Schein founded our company in 1932 with the belief that we can fulfill our responsibilities as a corporate citizen by giving back to the communities and industries we serve. Ever since then, we have pursued the essential ideal of "doing well by doing good." This spirit of corporate citizenship is exemplified through Henry Schein Cares, our global social responsibility program.
Corporate Social Responsibility at Henry Schein has four key areas:
Henry Schein helps expand access to health care for underserved and at-risk populations around the world by promoting wellness, prevention, treatment, and education; providing emergency preparedness and relief; and building health care capacity.
Specifically within the Medical division, we are very proud of our Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities® program, which partners with community health clinics to offer free health screenings to children and their caregivers.
Founded in 2006, Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities® promotes access to health care and provides free medical and dental services for underserved children and their caregivers in cities across the United States.
This unique program is co-sponsored by state and local health organizations. In each city, physicians, nurses, dentists, and community volunteers check for diseases and risk factors that commonly afflict children, including hypertension, asthma, diabetes, obesity, and poor oral health. Health care volunteers also educate children and their parents about ways to prevent and treat these health problems. The program seeks to create a "Health Home" for participating children, so that they have a place to receive ongoing care throughout the year. Henry Schein partners with more than a dozen of the Company's supplier partners, who generously donate medical and dental products for the program.
