A New Wellness: Pediatrics, Integrative Medicine

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital

On a mission to create healthier communities through healthier children

Dr French, an artist, musician, yogini, author and integrative pediatrician, is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, double board-certified in Pediatrics and Integrative Medicine, with fellowship training in Integrative Medicine and Integrative Psychiatry.  

With special interest in integrative nutrition, health care equity, childhood mental health and intergenerational resilience, she serves on professional and policy advisory boards of Let’s Integrate, ASPIRE and WholeHealthED and is a member of Integrative Medicine for the Underserved and the AAP’s Section on Integrative Medicine.

In clinical practice for 28 years, she melds her passion to provide affordable, accessible integrative pediatric care with craftivism through her affirmative art series and her meditative music at her office in St Louis, MO. She has researched and published on the topics of nutrition, yoga, art and resilience and has taught mindfulness, food as medicine and sound healing workshops to medical, dietetic and yoga students, pediatric and psychiatry residents/physicians and Montessori educators.

Having found balance through the healing arts after professional and personal burnout, Dr French offers integrative resources she hopes will be helpful through her website and her Facebook, Linkedin and Instagram pages. Her choice of meditation is walking her backyard labyrinth, being a mindful partner to her beloved and a mindful parent to her two precious daughters and her sweet dog.
