Dr. Scott French, M.D.
Dr. Scott French is a practicing Emergency Physician who began his career as full- time teaching faculty at Stanford Medical School and the University of North Carolina, as well as part time clinical faculty at the University of Washington, OHSU, Emory, and several other medical schools.
As a practicing Emergency Physician, Dr. French witnessed firsthand the catastrophic increase of suicide attempts and other serious behavioral disorders in our youth. Searching for a solution to this devastating crisis for our children, Scott was able to view the Shroud of Turin in May of 2015 as well as the 750 AD Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano, Italy. Subsequently, Dr. French was then led down an unexpected path of discovery as to the underlying cause of this modern-day misery and how yet again Jesus is the Way, and the Truth, and the Light. Jn 14:6
