MEET THE TEAM

CHANTAL LAPOINTE

Committee member

Chantal completed her bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy at the University of Montreal in 1991. Since graduating, she’s worked with children at CHU Sainte-Justine in Montreal joining the multidisciplinary EB team in 2015. She accepted this new challenge knowing full well that the rehabilitation needs of EB children are many and that they were, up until that point, unfulfilled.

In 2017, she joined DEBRA Canada’s Board of Directors and in 2019, the DEBRA International. Her view is that together, we will work to improve the quality of care, clinical services offered, research, and especially access to all knowledge about the disease.

In her spare time, she likes to climb mountains, walk in nature, do yoga, or be with her family.
