Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) announced today that it has been named to FORTUNE’s “Change the World” list, an annual ranking of companies that are doing well by doing good. Henry Schein was recognised for its efforts to improve the oral health and, by extension, the overall health of underserved populations around the world.
“Since our earliest days, we at Henry Schein have worked to align our strengths as a business with the needs of society, so it is greatly rewarding to be named to FORTUNE’s ‘Change the World’ list,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. “This recognition only serves to reinforce our commitment to improving the health of people in need, and we look forward to ‘helping health happen’ for years to come.”
Henry Schein was recognised for its efforts to improve the oral health of people in need through three initiatives the Company supports as part of Henry Schein Cares, its global corporate social responsibility programme:
- The Alpha Omega Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program – An initiative of Henry Schein and the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity to provide free oral health care to Holocaust survivors living in poverty across North America.
- Give Kids A Smile – Henry Schein helped the American Dental Association create this program in 2003, and since then it has provided free oral health care and education to more than 5.5 million children in need across the U.S. Henry Schein has served as the program’s official professional products sponsor since its inception.
- The Global Student Outreach Programme – Through this initiative, Henry Schein partners with dental schools to improve the oral health in remote and underserved communities around the world while enhancing educational opportunities for the next generation of oral health practitioners.
- The “Change the World” list recognises companies that have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy. FORTUNE considers a company’s measurable social impact, the business results of a company’s socially impactful work, the degree of innovation related to that work, and how integral the initiative is to a company’s overall strategy.
