October
8, 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 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.”
