The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics Received More Than
$25,000 from Henry Schein Cares to Help Fund Free Clinic in Madison
WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The National Association of Free
and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) announced that it received over $25,000 in
health care supplies from Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of
Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), through the Company's global corporate
social responsibility program, Henry Schein Cares. The company sponsored a
one-day free health clinic in Madison, Wisconsin, on August 9th.
Henry Schein, Inc. is the world's largest provider of health care products and
services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners.
"By working together with community health organizations, such as the National
Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, and our generous supplier
partners, we help increase access to care for the underserved in cities across
the country," said Ashely Lenz, Manager of Henry Schein Cares.
The clinic was held at Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center, 1919
Alliant Energy Center Way on Saturday, August 9th.
This free clinic was not just for the sick but also for anyone who was
uninsured or had little to no access to medical care and had not seen a doctor
recently. Hundreds of patients were able to receive basic preventive primary
medical care (including medical exams, diabetes tests, cholesterol tests,
EKGs, pregnancy tests and more), 3 free months of medication, health
education, on-site insurance navigators and connection to follow up care and
the area's safety net community resources.
"We were very pleased and appreciative that Henry Schein chose us as the
beneficiary of this generous donation," said NAFC Executive Director Nicole
Lamoureux. "This donation helped ensure that hundreds of our patients in
Madison received the health care that they needed."
