Dr. Bruce Madison, a fourth-generation Denverite, chose to refocus his extensive career in medicine and public health after a heart transplant in 2004. He’s since been involved in health policy in Colorado, lobbying the state on health policy issues and serving as the chairman of the Legislative Council of the Colorado Medical Society.
Bruce graduated from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 1975 and trained in internal medicine at D.C. General Hospital and in emergency medicine at Michigan State University. He then practiced emergency medicine before switching his focus to public health and obtaining a Master in Public Health from the Harvard School of Public Health. Bruce then worked in a variety of health management positions prior to his heart transplant.
Bruce has been awarded the Health Hero of Colorado Award by Health Care for All Colorado, the Commitment to Health Access Award by the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and the Founders Circle Award by the Colorado Center for Health Progress.
