Henry Schein awarded The Night Ministry the Gold Henry Schein Cares Medal for excellence in expanding access to health care to underserved populations.
The Night Ministry was honored for its innovative programs that bring free basic health care to its clients, like the Health Outreach Bus, which provides children and adults living in communities throughout Chicago with testing and prevention services, including physical health assessments, treatment for infectious and chronic diseases, prevention education, wound treatment, and referrals to primary medical care and housing.
"Since 1976, we have been driven by the belief that every person is important and has value, and that supportive relationships can build dignity, confidence, and a foundation for self-empowerment," said Paul W. Hamann, President & Chief Executive Officer, The Night Ministry. "We are inspired by the work of our fellow medalists and empowered by their efforts to serve people in need in innovative ways. We thank Henry Schein and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation for this recognition, and look forward to continuing our work on behalf of the Chicago community with their support."
Paul spoke with Henry Schein's Vice President of Corporate and Social Responsibility, Jennifer Kim Field, about The Night Ministry's innovative approach to addressing the physical, emotional, and social needs of the people we serve and the unique ways we engage our supporters in our mission.
