Mitch and I talk today about patient-centred care, meditation, why the "system" is broken, dehumanization, music and the arts and how it's all connected to our understanding of mind/body health.
Dr. Mitch Abrams, M.D. FRCP, is a Canadian radiologist, medical educator and held the post of Department Chair of Radiology at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
His experiences as a radiologist and his observations as a patient following heart surgery changed his thoughts on the profession he loves. Realizing medicine, as we know it has a limited scope Dr. Abrams is taking a partial leave of absence to launch a non-profit/social entrepreneurial program creating and promoting a new approach to well-being.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
