During the summer months, Brown Dermatology began a public service campaign to call attention to the dangers of skin cancer. Through informative videos, physicians explained the risk of over exposure to the sun’s damaging rays and discussed how everyone, regardless of skin tone, is susceptible to sun damage. Clinicians also discussed some basic preventative measures that should be taken to keep people of all ages safe when enjoying the sun and the outdoors.

Keeping the public informed regarding the latest health news, as well as helping to keep individuals and families healthy is a hallmark of Brown Physicians. We plan to continue creating public service announcements and videos across all our foundations.  

We are committed to ensure the public is made aware of important medical care and preventative steps that can be taken to improve outcomes.

Providing both primary and subspecialty care, this location has been designed to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients in Northern Rhode Island.

In addition to the staff recruitment component of our digital marketing campaign, we are also developing a campaign to remind Northern RI residents of the extensive care options now available at our Smithfield location.
