Alexandre Chagnon, pharmacist
Alexandre Chagnon is a pharmacist, an expert in digital health, and the founder of the Ask your pro website. He teaches at the University of Montreal and is the director of the digital health technology program at Laval University, in addition to his many years of volunteer work with high school students on the Academos platform. He is also a health contributor on the radio and for various publications, such as Naître et grandir, Virage, and Magazine Véro.
It was during his years as a hockey player that Alexandre’s interest in addiction first appeared, when he saw several teammates trying to quit smoking. Well aware that pharmacists are now an essential and accessible resource to prescribe all the smoking cessation treatments, it was with great pride that he accepted, in 2021, the role of spokesperson for the Quit to Win! Challenge.
