Henry Schein donated $200,000 in healthcare products to the Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, D.C., and the Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry in Nashville, Tenn.

The company donated $100,000 in products to each school. The donation was announced by Stanley Bergman, Henry Schein's chair of the board and CEO, during Howard's commencement ceremony May 6, according to a May 12 news release.
