I absolutely love this man and his gentle words of wisdom.  He was much more of a philosopher then scientist even though in reality he is both.  What a beautiful soul.  Over the course of his career, Dr. Louis Hugo Francescutti has made it his mission to raise awareness of public safety and to promote injury prevention. Born in Montreal, Dr. Francescutti received his Doctor of Philosophy in 1985 and his Doctor of Medicine in 1987 from the University of Alberta. While training as a general surgery resident, he became fascinated with the subject of injury prevention. In 1994, he completed his studies in injury control while working toward a Masters of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

After completing his residency in preventative medicine at the School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University in 1995, Dr. Francescutti joined the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, where he became an emergency and preventative medicine physician. In that role, he witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of preventable injuries. Dr. Francescutti currently works as an emergency physician at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and the Northeast Community Health Centre in Edmonton. As a professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta, Dr. Francescutti has taught courses in injury control and public health. In 1998, he was the recipient of the Outstanding Teaching Award, and in 2002 he earned a Clinical Teacher of the Year Award at the University of Alberta.

Over the past two-and–a-half decades, Dr. Francescutti has spearheaded various public safety awareness initiatives and campaigns. He developed an award winning multimedia injury prevention program for teenagers called HEROES and created an emergency medical response computer program. Dr. Francescutti has published research on topics including emergency medicine, health promotion and sport injury. His outstanding research and initiatives have earned him prestigious grants from the Government of Alberta, Service Canada and the Alberta Medical Association.
