Henry Schein hosted a two-day leadership event for the Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders, entitled "Integrating Dialogue, Leadership and Advocacy: Towards the Alliance Ethic and Developmental Agenda."
The event, held July 26-27 in New York City, brought together more than 40 oral health leaders from around the world.
The alliance's goal is to promote collaboration among oral health academic organizations, industry partners, and other organizations with the goal of using the power of oral health care to promote peace. Henry Schein Cares, the company's global corporate social responsibility program, sponsored the event with Septodont, DMG America, Premier Dental, and Bedford Healthcare Solutions. Henry Schein served as a founding sponsor of the Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders at the organization's inception last year.
The alliance includes representatives from Canada, China, Israel, Japan, Palestine, Turkey, and the U.S. It was born out of Bridges to Peace, a joint effort between Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Dentistry founded by Alpha Omega Fraternity and Al Quds University School of Dentistry, under the auspices of the D. Walter Cohen, DDS Middle East Center for Dental Education.
