In Remembrance: Dr. James Campbell
It is with great regret that we announce the passing of our founder and fearless leader, Dr. James L. Campbell Jr., who passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on Sunday, April 10th.
A true humanitarian, and passionate physician, Dr. Campbell spent the entirety of his 53 years at the service of others around him, working tirelessly to make sure his family, staff, patients, and friends were taken care of – always putting others before himself, serving his self-proclaimed motto, “we take care of our own.”
Dr. Campbell founded Dermatology & Skin Health in 2001, and co-founded the Skin Health Medi-Spa in 2005. He had also served as an associate professor at Dartmouth College since 2000, and was a valued author in the medical field, writing and contributing to over 50 books, articles, and studies related to dermatology.
Volunteering for such organizations as Casting for Recovery, the Annual MS Challenge Walk with his beloved “Minion Milers,” and even co-founding his own non-profit, Make Big Change, in 2014 to raise awareness and preventative measures in relation to skin cancer and proper skin health – Dr. Campbell worked diligently to make a difference in the greater community he was entrenched in.
Campbell’s spirit will continually be felt around the practice, as well as at Fenway Park where he was a season ticket holder, spending many a day rooting for his Boston Red Sox.
Dr. Campbell was recognized with the Amanda Dempsey Award last October – an award given annually to an individual cancer survivor demonstrating a passion for helping and working with others battling the disease. He himself was a two-time melanoma survivor.
While we mourn this greatly devastating loss, we want to assure everyone that the legacy of James L. Campbell will forever live on – through Dermatology & Skin Health, and with the work we will continue to do in our community through Make Big Change and other outlets. His work is our work, and we will yield at nothing to see it through.
In lieu of flowers, community members are invited to donate to the James L. Campbell “Making Big Change” fund which will be used to actively serve the initiatives he was most passionate about.
For further information, and to donate to the fund, please contact the Dermatology & Skin Health Practice Administrator, Laurie Seavey, at 603.674.8156 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You also donate directly to the fund here.
Arrangements celebrating Dr. Campbell’s life will be announced as soon as they have been finalized.
