1. Be Prepared

Anyone who’s been camping knows that a trip can turn miserable quickly if you aren’t prepared.

7 Great Dermatology Promotional Items That Increase New Patient Registrations

The quest for new patients seems like a never-ending battle. For some dermatology clinics, they might have more patients than they can handle because they don’t have too much competition.

For other clinics, it might be a constant struggle to find and persuade someone to become a patient.

Often, clinics will use promotions.

Give discounts on services.

Offer a free session.

All good strategies. However, the challenge is often in the follow-up. How do you stay top of mind when most people are being bombarded by advertising 24 (sometimes 25… ) hours of the day? How do you break through their highly-developed mental barrier for ignoring most advertising?

The Top 5 Types of Headwear for Cancer Patients

Cancer is one of the most challenging and stressful experiences of a lifetime. What makes the diagnosis even more difficult are the side effects of the chemotherapy. While devastating to many aspects of a person’s mental and physical health, it is a necessary treatment for the survival of the cancer patient.

Chemotherapy can be especially difficult because one of the main side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss. As much as our friends and family members try to lift our spirits once our hair begins to fall out, it is difficult to maintain high spirits and healthy self-esteem levels when our hair thins and falls out. While this loss of self-esteem may not seem important, ask any cancer survivor and they’ll tell you that a positive attitude and a hopeful spirit are important tools of survival during chemotherapy treatment.

In the spirit of boosting self-esteem and providing hope, we would like to present to you a concise list of headwear available to those who are suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy treatments.

On that note, let’s get familiar with the UV Index and the type of UPF products that help you enjoy the outdoors without eye and skin damage.
