Randall Brown, MD | Allied Professional Award
Baton Rouge Rape Crisis
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Dr. Randall Brown is the medical director of the Baton Rouge Rape Crisis Center. For the past 25 years, he has selflessly dedicated himself to the care of sexual assault victims. He has examined more than 1,000 victims of sexual assault in his career. He has published articles in national medical journals on the appropriate care of sexual assault victims and trained countless medical residents, physicians, and nurses on the proper technique for collection of forensic evidence. 

Dr. Brown created an award-winning training video that has been used for the past 10 years by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to educate physicians and nurses in 15 countries about the critical process of forensic evidentiary examinations of rape victims. 

He is the only gynecologist in the United States who has been elected to membership in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. Dr. Brown is also the only obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) in the nation who has received training as a forensic odontologist. 

He is always willing to treat victims in his private practice if they do not wish to go to hospital emergency departments for care. Dr. Brown maintains the highest standard of confidentiality when working within this sensitive process. The Louisiana Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program in Baton Rouge would not be as successful as it is without his continuing support. 

Dr. Brown was nominated by Wanda Pezant, BSN, RN, SANE-A, Denham Springs, Louisiana.
