On Thursday, June 18, Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Dennis Dunning will speak at Kingman Regional Medical Center’s monthly Lunch & Learn on the topic: “Managing Cardiac & Vascular Disease.” His presentation will include information on Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI), which is a serious blockage in arteries that restricts blood flow to hands, feet, or legs. CLI progresses to the point of severe pain and even skin ulcers or sores.
Dr. Dunning is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, and Interventional Cardiology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is also board-certified in Endovascular Medicine by the American Board of Vascular Medicine.
Dr. Dunning began his career as a veterinarian. He received a doctorate in veterinary medicine from Michigan State University (MSU) in Lansing, Michigan and was in private veterinary practice for nine years. He then attended the MSU School of Medicine, where he received a doctorate in medicine.
After completing residency training in internal medicine at Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he completed a three-year fellowship in Clinical Cardiology at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. His final year of training was a one-year fellowship in Interventional Cardiology at Borgess Hospital, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Prior to coming to Kingman, he practiced as an interventional cardiologist for 10 years in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Lunch & Learn features a different medical professional each month, focusing on important healthcare topics. The seminars are free and held in the Del E. Webb Wellness Center Conference Rooms from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Participants bring their own lunch and KRMC provides a beverage and dessert.
There is no charge for the program but seating is limited. The doors will open at 11:30 a.m. the day of the event. To ensure enough seating and desserts, please contact KRMC’s Public Relations at 681-8514 to make a reservation.
This month’s Lunch and Learn has been moved to Thursday for this month only. We will return to the normal schedule of the third Wednesday of the month in July.
