Henry Schein Cares Foundation: Henry Schein Cares MedalDeadline: October 10, 2018
The Henry Schein Cares Medal is awarded to organizations who recognize and support extraordinary efforts to expand access to oral and medical health care that are easily replicated in order to achieve greater impact globally. Awarded organizations/programs will demonstrate that they have expanded access to health care for the underserved in a novel and innovative way that is measurable and quantifiable. Emphasis will be placed on expanding access to health care for children (birth to age 18), although all efforts to expand access to care will be considered. Programs should involve an established multi-disciplinary team that demonstrates the expertise needed for a comprehensive solution to the targeted problem. Programs must demonstrate potential for replication and large-scale impact.
Programs will be evaluated on the following criteria.
