Bruin Beans Health Club (BBHC) is composed of undergraduates and recent alumni working with nephrologists at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine and UCLA CORE Kidney to improve healthcare delivery to patients with kidney disease by implementing CORE values of Clinical Excellence, Outreach, Research, and Education. We work with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals in order to communicate and bridge the gap of misinformation surrounding kidney health and increase societal awareness, community knowledge, and the medical body of literature on kidney disease and disease prevention through clinical research.

Dr. Anjay Rastogi MD, PhD, is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bruin Beans Health Club (BBHC) as well as the Clinical Chief of Nephrology at UCLA. He works closely with Bruin Beans to address the growing lack of awareness and misinformation surrounding kidney health.

Although born with the goal of increasing kidney awareness, BBHC hopes to improve awareness and prevention of a multitude of diseases.
