A professional misconduct hearing for a Halifax chiropractor under investigation for controversial online posts questioning vaccination and immunization has been adjourned until March.

A committee of the Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors launched an investigation last year into Dena Churchill, who bills herself as an “innovator in women’s health and wellness.”

Documents posted on the college’s website say Churchill requested an adjournment earlier this month to allow her more opportunity to prepare for the hearing.

The committee agreed to the adjournment, saying there is no urgent public interest or safety issue since Churchill is not currently practising.

The professional misconduct hearing is now scheduled to begin March 6.
