Greg Kawchuk web
Professor Greg Kawchuk has been re-appointed as Chair of the World Federation of Chiropractic’s Research Committee.

As Chair of the Research Committee since 2015, Dr Kawchuk (pictured, right) leads a team of leading international experts that serves to advise the WFC Council on matters of science and research.

WFC President, Dr Laurie Tassell said of the re-appointment, “Dr Kawchuk is an outstanding ambassador for the WFC and for chiropractic. The Council is delighted to re-appoint him for a second term of office and looks forward to the Research Committee continuing to support the work of the WFC. The World Federation strongly endorses an evidence-based, patient-centered, interprofessional and collaborative approach in chiropractic. The role of the Research Committee is integral to advancing this model by informing Council’s decision-making and maintaining its knowledge of existing and emerging scientific literature.”

Dr Kawchuk, a 1990 graduate of Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC), was awarded his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Calgary in 2000. He holds the title of Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine in the Faculty of Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta. He also holds adjunct positions at the University of Southern Denmark and at CMCC.

Dr Kawchuk is also one of the founders of the Chiropractic Academy of Research Leadership (CARL), an initiative that supports early career researchers around the world.

Speaking after his re-appointment was confirmed, Dr Kawchuk said, “I would like to thank the WFC for placing its trust in me to lead the Research Committee for a further 4 years. It will be an exciting time for the chiropractic profession as it furthers its commitment to evidence-based, patient-centered care. As well as coordinating the WFC Suggested Reading List for Chiropractic, my committee is pleased to coordinate the scientific component of the WFC’s Biennial Congress, the largest showcase in the world for chiropractic research. As knowledge continues to evolve, the Research Committee looks forward to supporting the WFC leadership in its important work."
