VALPARAISO, IN – HealthLinc has been approved to participate in the Henry Schein Cares’ Global Product Donation Program from January 2020 to December 2021. The program is one of several social responsibility initiatives of Henry Schein Cares which “helps health happen” by expanding access to care for at-risk and underserved populations through the support of not-for-profit organizations dedicated to increasing the delivery of health education and care.

The Henry Schein Cares’ Global Product Donation Program provides healthcare products and supplies to community medical and dental organizations. Participating organizations receive products based on the type of services they provide and typically receive two donations each year with products ranging in value from $5,000 – $25,000 each donation.

“We are grateful to the Henry Schein Foundation and Henry Schein Cares for selecting HealthLinc to be a part of the global donation program,” states Beth Wrobel, HealthLinc CEO. “Their generosity enables us to more effectively use our resources to provide high-quality health care to more patients.”

HealthLinc also receives dental supplies from the Henry Schein Foundation through their Give Kids A Smile program. HealthLinc hosts Give Kids A Smile events at their dental clinics every February.
