NexGenHealth is focused on changing the way we think of and deliver wellness, not only in our healthcare system but also in our communities.

Our pursuit is to change the narrative and culture around self-care, and to educate people about the science of connection and its impact on our collective health.

We can all become practitioners of health and participate in the design and delivery of more evolved systems.

Hello, I'm Dr. Mitch Abrams.

It is my passion to inspire the implementation of mindful and heartful strategies in healthcare, organizations and the community, to support individual and collective health. I personally experienced significant symptoms of burnout in my very first year of full-time Radiology practice. The medical system should support practitioners to lead by example, but instead, our current model challenges all aspects of our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. The medical community is not alone in its vulnerability to burnout and compassion fatigue. As a society we are more exhausted, anxious and burned out than ever before. We have the research to support a better approach to wellness, yet the old mindset and ingrained values hold us back from leveraging our greatest potential as healers and leaders. The more we begin operating as a society that understands how personal health affects our collective well-being, the more we will be able to nurture these connections, address the rampant burnout, anxiety, and depression in our society today, and come together in our common humanity.

Dr. Mitchell Abrams
B.Sc., MD, FRCPC,

Founder, CEO

Dr. Mitchell Abrams is a Canadian radiologist, keynote speaker, teacher and founder of NexGenHealth Ltd. Abrams completed his medical degree and radiology speciality from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada, holds a subspecialty in cross-sectional 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 interim department chair of Diagnostic Imaging at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

 

As part of a social impact initiative, Dr. Abrams is leading a capstone project (through Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education [CCARE], at Stanford School of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery) to create a sustainable fundraising model in support of mental health and resilience training for youth education, communities in need, and to support clinical research. This model leverages art, music and technology as tools to educate, heal and inspire.

Early in his radiology career, Dr. 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. It was this experience as patient, coupled with his roles as physician and department chair, that provided him with an intimate view of the inner workings of our healthcare system. He became acutely aware of the limitations and gaps in our current model of care. This realization became a passion and drove him down a path of research and experiential learning with experts around the globe, looking at different approaches to healing. In particular, Dr. Mitch’s background in radiology and his understanding of physics, supported a deep investigation into the nature of energy and how we best thrive. The intersection between his life in science and this powerful experience with healing, provided the foundation of what his life-mission has become – to support and promote a more holistic model of healthcare. As part of his mission, Dr. Mitch founded NexGenHealth: a social enterprise to bring forth a new paradigm in self-care, patient care, and community wellness.

“As a physician and a patient, I embarked on a journey to identify a more holistic and more effective approach to healing and health. I spent over a decade investigating, practicing, researching and amalgamating my learning in order to bring this knowledge to you. I come to you with personal stories, the latest research and a new vision for a brighter and more harmonious vision for humanity.” – Dr. Mitch Abram
