Bruce Biundo, RPh, B.S, FACA,  joined PCCA as a pharmacy consultant in 1997 after many years as a community pharmacist. What is likely the first educational event on low testosterone in men was presented by Bruce at the PCCA International Seminar in April 1999. In a short time, the interest grew and over the intervening years, the breadth and depth of information has greatly increased. As Bruce’s knowledge increased, so did PCCA’s ability to educate pharmacists and physicians on how to diagnose and treat low testosterone in men. Over the years, Bruce has had a dozen articles published, mostly dealing with men’s health and testosterone topics. In addition, he was a contributor to Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy, 22nd Edition, and is the co-author of the chapter on Nutrition in the book Aging Men’s Health. Bruce retired from PCCA in December 2021 but continues to provide compounding education.
