The American Academy of Dermatology has honored Robert T. Brodell, MD, FAAD, as a Patient Care Hero.
Dr. Brodell made it possible for citizens in the Delta to receive treatment from a Dermatologist. If not they would have to travel nearly 100 miles.
He worked with colleagues at the University of Mississippi Oxford to open a dermatology clinic in the Delta.
Dr. Brodell says, “When we realized the trouble Delta residents faced in accessing dermatology care, we knew we had to do something. Having a dozen dermatologists take this on together made it manageable for us to ensure consistent staffing, and we are happy to work together to meet this need.”
