Henry Schein's 'Think Pink, Practice Pink' Program Raises Awareness Of The Importance Of Early Breast Cancer Detection And Supports Expanded Access To Cancer Care

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 16, 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, once again helped raise awareness of the importance of early breast cancer detection and donated funds to support expanded access to cancer care.  Since the inception of Henry Schein's "Think Pink, Practice Pink" program in 2005, the Company has raised more than $850,000 in support of the American Cancer Society (the "Society") and other cancer-related causes.  Starting with an initial focus on breast cancer, the program has expanded over the years to support a broader portfolio of cancer-related causes, including pediatric and oral cancers.


The Henry Schein "Think Pink, Practice Pink" program offers a wide selection of pink products—ranging from health care consumables and practice supplies to apparel— to its Dental, Dental Laboratory, Medical and Special Markets customers.  Through the end of December, a portion of the sales of these special products will be donated to the Society and other cancer-related causes through 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.

As part of this program, Team Schein Members at the Company's headquarters and other Company locations wore pink on October 15, and were provided with essential information about breast cancer detection.  In addition, Team Schein Members donated their own funds, with matching funds provided by the Company.  Click on Think Pink, Practice Pink 2013 to view photos from Henry Schein's "Think Pink" Day.

"As the second most common cause of death in the United States, cancer touches the lives of all of our Team Schein Members in some way," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Henry Schein, Inc.  " Henry Schein is proud to raise awareness of the importance of early breast cancer detection and raise funds to support expanded access to cancer care.  Through the generosity of our Team Schein Members, supplier partners and customers, Henry Schein's 'Think Pink, Practice Pink' program has touched the lives of countless numbers of patients and their families over the past eight years."

According to the Society, cancer accounts for nearly one of every four deaths in the United States.  Approximately 1,660,290 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2013.
