When I was in high school, a family trip brought me to Italy for summer vacation. The experience made me feel that I wanted to return, one day, and do something important here. When I began training to be a chiropractor, I knew that was the gift that I was supposed to bring to this country.
Could you imagine selling your practice as well as most of your belongings? Could you imagine packing up your family into your van, to leave on an adventure with only a vague destination in mind? Beginning in January 1997, my wife, our six children – aged three to 12 – and I, drove from our home in Quebec, to the bottom of South America and, eventually, back home. In total, our adventure spanned a period of three years.
My name is Jennifer Frohlich and I graduated with the class of 2004. After a year of hard work in Canada I found myself on a plane travelling south, very far away from the hallways of CMCC. I landed in Sydney, then was off to Melbourne to complete the Australian Board Exams. A week later I arrived in Brisbane, where I had accepted a position in a town called Cleveland.
Dr. Sonia Rodrigue is a graduate of the chiropractic program at the Université du Québec a Trois-Rivières. Having matriculated from the program in 1999, she moved to France, where she worked, on a temporary visa, for four months. In 2001, Dr. Rodrigue, settled in France with her new husband, achieved her resident status and began working in Dinard, near Saint-Malo on the Côte d’Emeraude (Emerald Coast) in Brittany.
Dr. Gerard Clum, president of Life Chiropractic College West in the San Francisco Bay area, has also been president of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) for the past two years. As of June 7, 2008, Dr. Clum stepped down as WFC president, and Dr. Stathis Papadopolous of Cyprus was elected his successor. Canadian Chiropractor wishes Dr. Clum success in his future endeavours, and thanks him for joining us, in this issue, to discuss the profession’s development globally, and Canada’s role in this development.
