UC San Diego Extension’s Leslie Bruce, host of “The Pulse,” a monthly podcast devoted to health issues, recently interviewed Rep. Scott Peters, (D-Calif.).
“Congressman Peters has been active in the national healthcare debate, both regionally and in Washington,” said Bruce, co-director of Extension’s Healthcare Delivery and Behavioral Sciences. “At a time when so much about healthcare is changing so quickly, he provides insight and perspective."
In the recently decided Nov. 4 election, Rep. Peters was re-elected to serve California’s 52nd Congressional District, which includes the cities of Coronado, Poway, and most of northern San Diego, including UC San Diego’s health sciences campus east of I-5.
An expert in healthcare and public policy, Bruce currently serves as Extension instructor for Politics and Public Policy of US Healthcare: Washington, DC and Introduction to US Healthcare. She also lectures in the Health Law and Policy master’s degree program and in the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program.
