Henry Schein Supports National Health Center Week 2013

MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, is participating as a silver sponsor of National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) National Health Center Week 2013, this year taking place August 11-17.  In celebration of the Company's strong support of the nation's community health centers, Henry Schein sponsored events in Omaha, NE; New Orleans, LA; Woodbridge, VA; New York, NY; and Petaluma, CA.

" Henry Schein is proud to sponsor National Community Health Center week as part of our strong partnership with NACHC, and our deep commitment to helping America's community health centers deliver excellent quality care," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Henry Schein, Inc.  "The wonderful National Health Center week celebrations taking place across the country underscore the critically important role that these health centers play in promoting health, wellness and prevention for tens of millions of Americans."

Henry Schein's program, "HealthHome ®:  Solutions for Coordinating Prevention and Wellness" provides full spectrum medical and oral health support to the nation's community health care centers, including supplies and equipment; electronic health care records software; health center design and planning; and 340B, diagnostic, and influenza vaccine programs. 

Last year, Henry Schein announced a five-year partnership between the Henry Schein Cares Foundation, Inc. and NACHC to increase access to care for underserved communities.  As part of this partnership, NACHC actively participates in two Henry Schein Cares flagship initiatives:  Henry Schein's Global Product Donation Program and the Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities ® initiative. Henry Schein's Global Product Donation program provides a broad selection of health care products and supplies to community medical or dental organizations.  The Henry Schein Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities initiative promotes access to health care, prevention, and wellness for at-risk and underserved communities by providing free medical and oral health screenings for thousands of children and their caregivers at events around the country. 

According to NACHC, community health centers serve over 22 million people in medically underserved communities nationally.  This year's National Health Center Week theme, "Transforming Health Care in Our Local Communities," highlights the fact that, according to NACHC,  the nation's community health centers not only seek to deliver health care, but they also work to address the factors that impact health, including nutrition, unemployment, or homelessness through job training, insurance enrollment, housing assistance and case management.
