Cardinal Health employees have knowledge, skills and talents that can help our communities overcome challenges and thrive. Through our Essential to Community program, Cardinal Health encourages employees to get involved and give back to communities where they live and work. The scope of this effort is currently in the US, as well as Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Malaysia, Thailand and Canada.
While we support many employee-driven volunteer activities, we encourage involvement that impacts health and wellness including cancer, diabetes, heart disease and multiple sclerosis.
