Bruce founded Health Guardians America to contribute towards addressing one of the most pressing public health issues of our generation. Since inception in 2011, he continues to oversee the planning, design, and implementation of the precision-engineered, self-sustaining public health program at a national level. With the generous support of all the past and present members of the nonprofit, he has navigated the strategic growth of the health organization from the flagship campus at UC Berkeley in California to +25 universities across the United States with the goal of 100 campuses with over 100K health participants by 2020.
Bruce graduated magna cum laude with dual degrees from the University of California Berkeley in human biology and Walter A. Haas School of Business in business administration. Bruce taught over 20 semester courses leading to an lecturer appointment and a university teaching award at commencement in 2012. As a recipient of several academic scholarships in science and technology, he had the opportunity to complete a senior honors research thesis supervised by Dr. Andrew Parsa, MD, PhD, previously Vice Chairman of Neurological Surgery at UCSF Medical Center and Chairman at Northwestern Medicine.
As an MD/MPH candidate, he studied medicine at Drexel College of Medicine and public health at Columbia University in the City of New York, where he is a university scholarship recipient and an elected member of the Columbia University Senate.
