Built in partnership with global non-profit organization Heart to Heart international, the kits will then be sent to non-profit organisations dedicated to the fight against cancer in each location’s community. in 2018, more than 17,000 hygiene kits where assembled. these kits went to people living in international emergency areas. the winning team each year gets to pick the theme for the year ahead. in 2019 all challenge participants are building comfort patient kits for people currently going through cancer treatment. the local Australasian teams assembled 1,500 kits for the McGrath Foundation. these kits are now being distributed to McGrath Foundation nurses who will be handing them out to patients during their home visits. the McGrath Foundation is a breast cancer support and education charity in Australia, which raises money to placeMcGrath Breast Care nurses in communities across Australia and increase breast health awareness. the challenge is not only a fantastic way for tsM’s to come together it’s a way in which we can truly give back to people within the community we live. u If you have any questions about Henry Schein Cares and other projects we are involved in, please email Henry schein’s ‘we Care global Challenge’ hits Australia! n ws C areDent has kicked off the new year with the launch of its new dental professional website (www. . the website will showcase the company’s complete oral care range, including personalised products, new interBrush, toothbrushes, floss and special deals. to celebrate the launch, from 20 February – 31 March 2019, all orders placed on the new website will be 20% off and will receive free shipping.
