Dr. Mitch Abrams is a Canadian Radiologist as well as the Founder and CEO of NexGenHealthLtd. He received a medical degree and radiology specialty from Dalhousie University and holds a subspecialty in Magnetic Resonance Imaging. He is an Associate Professor at Michael G Degroote School of Medical Sciences and was Department Chair of Diagnostic Imaging at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
Mitch has experienced a remarkable journey through western healthcare, as a physician, division chief and open-heart surgical patient. This journey has afforded him an intimate look into our current healthcare model and a unique perspective on life.
Early in his Radiology career, Mitch was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy, a disease that can lead to sudden cardiac death in seemingly fit and healthy young people. He required open heart surgery in order to prevent the worst-case scenario. Through his experiences as a patient and department chair, he became acutely aware of the limitations of our current model of care.
Disillusioned, Mitch began travelling to India, studying the Eastern holistic approach to healing, encompassing Mind, Body and Spirit, and in particular, the role of ENERGY as it relates to consciousness, the science of mind and overall health. Practicing with masters in the art of spiritual healing, he began studying the intersection of science and spirituality.
This journey through open-heart surgery was also the inspiration for Mitch to begin playing guitar, singing and writing music. He found that music played an integral role in his healing, and that it filled a void in his life – his music comes from his heart.
Combining his passion for the arts and medicine, Mitch has launched a social enterprise delivering innovative health strategies and programs to support mental health and social inclusivity using the power of the medical humanities, music, art and technology.
