October 8, 2008 (Dallas, Texas) — After spending more than 30 years as a Parker Seminars attendee, Dr. Gilles Lamarche is now on the other side, having recently accepted the position of Vice President of Seminars and Development at Parker College of Chiropractic. Dr. Lamarche will oversee Parker Seminars, Community and Donor Relations, Parker SHARE Products, and the Office of Alumni Relations.
“Parker to me is my second family,” said Dr. Lamarche. “It’s what guided me to have a successful practice. This is like coming home.”
Dr. Lamarche was exposed to chiropractic at the age of 12, and after experiencing amazing success, he began to develop what has now become his life’s passion. Even before becoming a doctor of chiropractic, he attended Parker Seminars to gain as much knowledge as possible.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Lamarche operated a successful chiropractic practice in Hearst and Timmins, Ontario. Throughout the years, he has received numerous honors and accolades, including “Chiropractor of the Year” in 2004. Dr. Lamarche credits his success to the mentorship of Dr. James W. Parker, founder of Parker College of Chiropractic and Parker Seminars. “It was Dr. Parker that taught me his philosophy–loving service, my first technique,” said Dr. Lamarche.
In that spirit of service, Dr. Lamarche served as a pioneer partner during Parker College’s beginnings and was one of the early contributing donors. In 2006, his service continued after Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker College of Chiropractic, asked him to assist with the Parker Seminars program, and he has been doing so ever since. “I want to support the vision of Dr. Parker to really bring chiropractic to the world,” said Dr. Lamarche. “By serving our attendees, vendors, sponsors, exhibitors, and all of those we work with to the best of our abilities, we are creating additional success for everyone.”
Dr. Lamarche’s ultimate goal fits well in line with that of Parker Seminars–to have chiropractic recognized worldwide as a viable profession that enhances health and healing. “Through his service to Parker College and Parker Seminars, Dr. Lamarche is continuing to have a profound impact on the entire chiropractic profession and the lives of people around the world,” said Dr. Mancini. “I am certain that Parker and chiropractic will continue to grow, prosper, and benefit from his contributions.”
