Henry Schein's Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities Program Promotes Prevention And Wellness In 12 Cities Across The United States

MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, announced today that the 2012 Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities program will provide free medical and dental services to more than 8,000 children and their caregivers. Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities events are being held in cities throughout the United States through the end of the year.  The 2012 season kicked off with events held recently at the Doris Ison Clinic in Miami, Fl. and the Marlboro County High School in Bennettsville, SC.


A flagship program for Henry Schein Cares, the Company's global corporate social responsibility program, Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities promotes access to health care, prevention, and wellness for underserved communities by providing free medical and dental screenings at events that are fun and engaging for the community.  Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities is annually co-sponsored by state and local community health organizations and supported by Henry Schein's supplier partners.  The Henry Schein Cares Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that supports and promotes dental, medical, and animal health by helping to increase access to care globally, provided financial support for the program as well.

" Henry Schein is deeply grateful for the commitment of our partner community health organizations and for the generosity of our valued supplier partners in working together with us to enhance access to care for the underserved in cities across the United States," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, Inc.  "The success of the Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities program underscores the importance of preventive care in the fight against chronic diseases, and the powerful impact that securing a 'Health Home™' can have in the improvement of the overall health of patients."  

At each Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities event, local physicians, nurses, dentists, and community volunteers screen for five diseases and associated risk factors that commonly affect children and caregivers: hypertension, asthma, diabetes, obesity, and poor oral health.  In addition, participating children and their caregivers receive educational materials about ways to prevent and treat these problems, information about returning for a flu vaccination later in the season, and assistance in finding a local community health center where they may receive health care on a regular basis.  The program seeks to create a "Health Home™" for participating children and their caregivers, so that they have a place to receive ongoing care throughout the year.
