MONTVALE, N.J., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The rapidly changing dynamics of media consumption means healthcare marketers will place a greater focus on electronic communications in the future. To meet that need, Dowden Custom Media, a leader in integrated consumer healthcare marketing programs, has repositioned its electronic media division under the new umbrella of eCrossings Media. The division supports Dowden Custom Media's healthcare clients as well as clients across Lebhar-Friedman, Inc., Dowden's parent company.

eCrossings Media will continue to offer e-media, Internet and new media services and products.

"Our clients will see greater innovation through enhanced services, efficiencies and technology." The change does not involve any personnel changes.
