When not in the office, you’ll find Dr. Shelnutt enjoying time with his wife and five children. The family is also active in Athens Church, where they seek to grow their faith in Jesus Christ and to share that faith with others. Their dedication to the community is evident in their role in founding Mercy Health Center, a medical resource for the underserved in Athens.
