Dr. Mitchell Abrams

Physician, Social Architect & Educator and Expert on Energy, Work Life Balance, Health & Wellness

Dr. Mitchell Abrams is a Canadian Radiologist, Guest Speaker, as well as the Founder and CEO of consulting and technology company thatdelivers a multi-disciplinary approach to personal wellbeing and community health. Abrams experienced a remarkable journey through western healthcare, as a physician, division chief and open-heart surgical patient. Through these experiences, he has been afforded an intimate look into our current healthcare model and a unique perspective on life. Combining his passion for the arts and medicine, Abrams initiated a social enterprise delivering innovative health strategies and programs to support mental health and social inclusivity using the power of the medical humanities and technology.

Dr. Abrams completed his medical degree and radiology specialty from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada, holds a subspecialty in Magnetic Resonance Imaging from the University of Toronto and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Dr. Abrams is an Associate Professor at Michael G Degroote School of Medical Sciences and was Department Chair of Diagnostic Imaging at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

Early in his Radiology career, Dr. Mitchell Abrams 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, Abrams 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, Abrams began studying the intersection of science and spirituality.

Radiology is a unique specialty in the broader field of medicine, exploring the human body using energy rather than a scalpel. Combining his passion for the arts and leveraging his radiology background, Dr. Mitchell Abrams educates audiences discussing a new framework for understanding ENERGY through an East- meets-West perspective, explaining the latest brain health research and how it relates to overall health.

Dr. Mitchell Abrams founded NexGenHealth Ltd., a social enterprise creating healthy minds and connected communities through the power of the arts and technology. Through inspiring and socially inclusive co-creative programs, we heal, learn and grow together in celebration of a new vision for the future. By aligning with a variety of communities, locally and globally, Abrams is sparking a renaissance approach for improving health and renewing a sense of belonging to something bigger than the self while cultivating an awakening and a deep sense of connection among people and communities.

Dr. Abrams shares his personal story of burnout and new insights gained from his life threatening illness, his time as department chief, and from travelling in India while exploring new approaches to health and wellness.
