Dena Churchill posted online extensively about vaccines and made unfounded claims
A Halifax-based chiropractor who attracted attention for her unfounded views on vaccines is no longer licensed to practise in Nova Scotia.
A notice on the Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors' website says Dena Churchill surrendered her licence in January and entered into a settlement agreement with the college in which
she admits the charge of being "professionally incompetent as a result of incompetence arising out of mental incapacity."
A hearing on the charge scheduled for next week will no longer go ahead.
The settlement agreement says Churchill underwent a psychological assessment in the fall. She cannot reapply for a licence to practise in Nova Scotia unless she provides a qualified medical opinion to the college's satisfaction that she is competent and fit to practise.
