IMAGINE is a grassroots initiative that aims to improve the healthcare system by engaging Albertans in the design and delivery of healthcare. IMAGINE was started by a number of concerned citizens working with the support of the O’Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary. A forum on January 22, 2015 was the first step in this ambitious initiative that asks Albertans to imagine a different kind of health care system for our province. Since the forum, the IMAGINE Steering Committee has been meeting weekly and collaborating with other citizen and stakeholder groups to put shape to this vision.
IMAGINE started as individuals who had difficult experiences with the health care system and wanted it to be better. We believe that by working together we can make that happen.
