To encourage chiropractic in the rural areas, he turned six of the practices over to family and friends who had graduated from chiropractic college.

Denise Bohemier, Vice President

In 1971, Denise Bohemier left a career in psychiatric nursing to lend her efforts to the Chiropractic profession and has been doing so ever since.
She has run a chiropractic clinic, raised funds for chiropractic research and education and most importantly, passed on a chiropractic lifestyle to her three children and four grandchildren.

Throughout her professional life, she’s been referred to as a “birth angel”, supporting families through natural birth and newborn care as a doula.
At her core, what she loves most is helping others to discover what she did back in 1971; that living the chiropractic principles brings health and wellness in abundance.

She resides in Winnipeg, Canada but leaves as often as she can to visit her grandchildren in both Florida and Vancouver.

Dr. Robert Champagne, Advisory Board Member

Dr. Robert Champagne was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He graduated summa cum laude from Life Chiropractic College (Atlanta, GA) in 1980. He then returned home to Winnipeg where he opened his first chiropractic office. For eighteen years, he ran one of the busiest family-oriented chiropractic practices in Manitoba.

In 1998, being an avid skier, mountain biker, hiker and overall outdoor enthusiast, he decided to follow his dream and move closer to the mountains with his wife and their five children. In 2002, Dr. Champagne opened Douglasdale Family Chiropractic Centre in Southeast Calgary, Alberta which he sold in January, 2008. This allowed him to devote more time to expanding the walls of his office to other continents, by co-founding Chiropractic for the World Foundation.

In February, 2009, Chiropractic for the World Foundation received charitable status after many months of planning and waiting. Besides being the president of the foundation, Dr. Champagne now resides in Fernie, B.C. and enjoys time with his wife Suzanne, their five children and six grandchildren.

Dr. Louis Demello – BScKin, CSCS, DC

Dr Louis Demello graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2015. Growing up Louis was extremely active and enjoyed many outdoor activities and sports, having lived in rural Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

At the age of 18 he moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia to pursue a degree in kinesiology at Dalhousie University. In his 3rd year at school his passion for strength and conditioning happened to earn him a spot on the track and field team. The rigorous nature of the training is what eventually lead to his introduction to chiropractic.

The contribution that chiropractic made to his health fostered a deep passion for the profession and in 2011 he moved to Toronto to begin his studies. Now, having completed his doctorate, Louis is starting a new chapter in his career and life in Arequipa, Peru.
