Dr. Scott Dunavant, FACEP
Senior Medical Director

"Dr. D" has provided emergency medical and trauma care in university and community settings for more than 25 years. His involvement with helicopter transport has been as an onboard aeromedical physician, teacher and administrator. Inspired by the prior work and successes of GRM, he joined the group first as a volunteer physician to help with the care of the refugees and asylum seekers camped out, stranded on our own southern border in Matamoros Mexico. Scott then became involved in the COVID-19 planning, on-site ultrasound education, telemedicine and most recently, search and rescue.

While Dr. D has lectured nationally, been published and chaired institutional review boards, his main interest has always remained clinical care and teaching others in Emergency Medicine so they may be appropriately confident in emergencies and "be comfortable in uncomfortable settings."


We are in Gaza and Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
