O'Brien Institute for Public Health


Although the aim of The Imagine Project was to change the culture of the health professions and health system as they relate to the patient, it was always intended to be a grassroots initiative.

Following the launch of the project on January 22, 2015, the O’Brien Institute handed over the project reins to a new citizen-led committee, IMAGINE Citizens Collaborating for Health.

As part of this evolution, the O’Brien Institute continues to support IMAGINE through funding, by functioning as the initiative’s secretariat and by providing logistical and technical support to the citizens’ efforts. Many of the IMAGINE citizens, such as Dr. Ward Flemons and Adjunct Professor Gail McKean PhD, are also O’Brien Institute members.
