Dunavant Medical Group Heartily Supports 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H.
Dunavant Medical Group, led by Dr. Scott Dunavant M.D., is giving away a Dri-FIT shirt to patients who register for the 7th Annual 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H., of which it's a Silver Sponsor. Dr. Dunavant believes the race is an important event for many reasons.
“It's important for health, F.I.S.H. and to me as a healthcare provider,” said Dr. Dunavant, who has race registration forms on a clipboard at his office window. “I believe everyone should walk to have a healthier lifestyle, plus the 10K is a good time for a good cause.”
Dunavant and his team of professionals operate an urgent care and a traditional family practice clinic offering healthcare with a personal touch. Dunavant Medical Group exists to bring Sanibel and Captiva residents and visitors the highest-quality, easily-accessible care. The dedicated team strives to be role models for a healthier community – registering staff and patients for the 10K race.
“We are delighted to have Dr. Dunavant and his staff as supporters of the 10K Race and F.I.S.H.,” said Ed Ridlehoover, 10K Committee co-chair. “They are a wonderful group of professionals, who are personable and compassionate.”
The newly opened clinic offers primary care for older children to adults, as well as urgent care for all ages. Care is provided for routine conditions, such as colds, fevers, flu, ear conditions or respiratory concerns. Chronic conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis or hypertension, along with annual exams, physicals or preventative medicine can also be handled by the health professionals at Dunavant Medical Group.
Dr. Dunavant received his Medical Degree from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and has extensive experience with emergency medicine, sports medicine, professional teams and family practice. His team of healthcare professionals is led by Diane St. Pierre, ARNP, who has more than 30 years of healthcare experience.
