Dr. Jean-Francois Henry, a 1997 graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College, and a resident of Canada, was recently elected president of the Ordre Des Chiropracticiens Du Quebec (OCQ).
A professional chiropractic organization, OCQ members have an exclusive right to practice by virtue of the professional code, uniting more than 1,300 chiropractors in Quebec. The group seeks to protect the public by ensuring the quality and excellence of chiropractic care, and by offering support in the development of skills by its members. OSQ also seeks to be an authority in neuromuscular health and a leader in spinal and joint manipulation.
Henry was first elected to the board of directors of OCQ in 2008, and served as secretary-treasurer from 2009-11. He was named vice president in 2011, a position he held until being elected president May 9. He succeeds Dr. Georges Lepage, who had held the post since 2011.
“I initiate this mandate in a spirit of continuity, openness and collaboration with all the actors of the professional system,” Henry said. “I want to thank Dr. Lepage for the excellent work he has done over the last four years.”
Henry has also served OCQ as chair of the of the regulations committee, and a member of the committees on admissions, governance, communications and illegal practices. A board member of the Canadian Federation of Chiropractic Regulatory and Educational Accrediting Boards since 2010, he is also a delegate to the Quebec Interprofessional Council, serving on the planning committee.
