Mr. Kaczorowski, a graduate of Concordia and McGill universities, is a medical sociologist who has done research in family medicine, epidemiology, psychology and sociology. He enters politics because he is alarmed by the catastrophic state of our health care system, highlighted by the pandemic. Mr. Kaczorowski believes that attracting and retaining the best talent is essential to ensuring the prosperity of Montreal and Quebec. "I want Montreal to continue to be a prosperous, tolerant and cosmopolitan city that everyone in the world aspires to emulate." As a first-generation immigrant who found refuge in Canada after fleeing communist Poland, he is concerned about recent policies that disproportionately and negatively affect Montreal and Montrealers.
Mr. Kaczorowski is Full Professor and Director of Research in the Department of Family and Emergency Medicine at the University of Montreal and Deputy Director of the Center for Innovation and Health Evaluation of the Center de recherche du Center hospitalier de l' University of Montreal (CRCHUM). He holds three research chairs: the Dr. Sadok Besrour Chair in Family Medicine, the GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) Chair in Optimal Management of Chronic Diseases, and the CIHR/Heart & Stroke Chair in Hypertension Prevention and Control.
