An interview with Canadian physician Dr. James Orbinski is presented. When asked about his reason for writing "An Imperfect Offering," he stated that he wanted to personalize a world that is often seen as being well beyond Canada and the West. Orbinski added that he hopes that readers will be more engaged in their world and become more active as citizens. He emphasized that physicians have a role above more other citizens.
