TORONTO, ONTARIO - February 01, 2013
Theralase Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: TLT) announced that effective today Mr. Matthew Perraton PFP, FMA, FCSI and Mr. Guy J. Anderson BA, CFP, CIM, FMA, FCSI, MBA have agreed to serve on the company's Board of Directors. 

Mr. Perraton and Mr. Anderson join Mr. Donald Moore, Mr. Randy Bruder and Mr. Roger Dumoulin-White on the board and will be instrumental in helping Theralase secure the financing required to fuel Theralase's growth over the next 5 to 10 years. 
 
Mr. Perraton brings over 13 years of financial experience to Theralase, most recently as a Financial Planner for TD Waterhouse. Prior to his current position, Mr. Perraton held progressively higher positions with BMO Nesbitt Burns and Bank of Nova Scotia. 
 
Mr. Perraton stated that, "I am delighted to join the board at Theralase, as I am absolutely convinced that Theralase is on the right path for shareholder value with both their therapeutic laser technology for healing tissue and their Photo Dynamic Compound (PDC) technology for destroying cancer. Their technology is far superior to anything I have seen on the market and properly financed I see great opportunities for Theralase in the near term".
 
Mr. Anderson brings over 16 years of financial experience to Theralase, most recently as a Wealth Management and Personal Finance Advisor with the Investment Planning Counsel. Prior to his current position, Mr. Anderson held progressively higher positions with Franklin Templeton Investments Canada, T.E. Financial and Bank of Nova Scotia.

I join Matt in saying that properly capitalized there is nothing that stands in the way of Theralase's success. Their technology is not only the best on the market, but their management team has demonstrated an ability to survive in choppy markets and to advance the technology to the point that it is ready to grow in leaps and bounds".
 
Roger Dumoulin-White, President and CEO, Theralase Technologies Inc. stated, "I am pleased that Matt and Guy have agreed to serve on our Board of Directors. They both have broad experience in financial management, regulatory compliance and strategic planning and both possess the vision and financial acumen to drive Theralase forward to achieve our full potential. I welcome Matt and Guy to the board and am confident that both will serve the company and the shareholders well during their tenure." 
 
Mr. Dumoulin-White also stated, "We are all saddened by the loss of our long time board member Mr. John "Jack" Murphy late last year  and we would like to take this opportunity to express our profound condolences to Jack's family. He was a strong member of our team, an insightful director and always a pleasure to work with. His business judgment and knowledge will be sorely missed".

Press Release

Thursday, 24 January 2013 14:53
DeutchmanWorld Chiropractic Alliance CEO Terry A. Rondberg, DC announced last month that the organization's Board of Directors has voted unanimously to appoint Gary Deutchman, DC, as one of three NGO (non-governmental organization) representatives to the United Nations' Department of Public Information.

"I'm very excited to have Dr. Deutchman assume this important position representing the chiropractic profession on the world stage," said Rhomberg. "Gary is a true humanitarian, and has served the public through his chiropractic practice as well as working with; the Hale House in NYC, a non-profit program founded by Mother Hale, the Gay Man’s Health Crisis in New York City, a program dedicated to improving awareness as well as the lives of those at high risk for AIDS. He is particularly interested in the humanitarian outreach possible afforded by this position. Currently Dr. Deutchman visits Haiti several times per year to offer chiropractic care, as well as fund raising for food, clothing and shelter.

In 1998, the Department of Public Information at the UN conferred NGO status to the WCA. Christopher Kent, DC, was the group's first NGO represented and went on to serve as chairman of the NGO Health Committee.  More recently, Ken Vinton, DC and Tim Merrick filled the position.

"My goal is to use this position to serve mankind," said Deutchman. "Those that have come before me deserve great respect, and I hope to exceed everyone’s expectation."

Some of Dr. Deutchman’s duties will be to attend periodic briefings at the UN headquarters in New York and meeting with representatives from other NGOs from around the world. He will share information about chiropractic and the role chiropractors can play in addressing health concerns in developing nations as well as in first-world countries. Currently Dr. Deutchman is working to increase awareness of Chiropractic in the Middle East as well as Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

"I’m humbled each day I get the opportunity to share chiropractic throughout the world," Deutchman said. "The U.N. is a place where people from all walks of life can come together for the betterment of man, Chiropractic should be represented in this type of arena," he added.

Now in his 27th year of private practice, Gary is a board-certified Chiropractor with multiple offices in New York, Illinois, Colorado, Georgia, Arizona, Washington State, Florida, California, Texas, and North Carolina.

The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education, all by the target date of 2015 – form a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. They have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest. "Chiropractors need to contribute within the framework of the MDGs," explained Deutchman. "We want to touch the populations of the world who desperately need for what we can provide, I intend to do just that.”
