I enjoyed sharing podium duties with Bruce on many occasions.  He was a gentleman and a deep thinker.  My deepest condolences to his wife and family.

Bruce started working with American Bone Health in 2002 when we received a grant from the Administration for Aging (and Kaiser) to put together an osteoporosis awareness campaign for women. He always joked that Kaiser made him do that to keep an eye on us!  Bruce was also a founding member of our Medical and Scientific Advisory Board in 2005 and helped American Bone Health hone its consumer-focused voice. He was the author of the ABH Fracture Risk Calculator and a keen advocate for patient literacy.

My heart is broken.

This morning I am shocked to learn via ASBMR Newsletter that Bruce has passed away! I had wonderful interaction with him on issues of fracture risk assessment, an area of research that he was interested in. He was a thinker who kept focusing on the use of fracture risk prediction tools for improving patient care. The passing of Bruce means that our  bone community has lost one of the best minds. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

I met with Bruce and his wife back in 1989 while I was about to start my post doc fellowship in Lima Linda, Ca. He was a kind man and and a great scientist. His work on the positive impact of estrogen on bone even in older people with very low estrogen doses has always been a strong hallmark in the osteoporosis world. My heartfelt condolences to his family. RIP Bruce!
