In the 30 years since he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, businessman and philanthropist
Bruce Braden has never let the disease slow him down. He struggled at first, but his endocrinologist
and care team helped him learn to carefully manage his condition by taking insulin, watching his diet, and
getting vital exercise hiking around the local lakes. Bruce wanted to give back to his community by helping
others who suffer from diabetes to have access to comprehensive expertise and services – right here in
Marin. So he made a significant donation to create the Braden Diabetes Center (BDC) at Marin General
Hospital. The BDC provides convenient outpatient education and resources to help prevent the onset
and complications of this potentially debilitating disease. Living well with diabetes is a daily challenge,
but as Bruce will attest, expert care makes the path much easier.
