Brian Nguyen grew up in a happy family based in Orange County, California and has spent his entire academic career since then evaluating the factors contributing to happy families. After receiving his Bachelor’s in Human Biology and Master’s in Sociology at Stanford University, he attended Brown Medical School in Rhode Island, after all of which, he decided that family planning, family dinner, and family-focused fathers had played enormous roles in his own success. Consequently, he has been a coordinator for his medical school’s chapter of Medical Students for Choice, published and presented research on the phenomenon of men buying emergency contraception for women at pharmacies, and published provider-side barriers to the uptake of vasectomy in Rhode Island. He spent time at Harbor-UCLA organizing a clinical trial for a topical male hormonal contraceptive, and presented updates on new methods at Brown. He hopes to continue research that would create a positive role for men in women’s health. When not in the hospital, Brian can be found at farmer's markets and craft fairs, sometimes even selling his own neckties. He also enjoys cooking as a means of bringing people together and sharing familiar stories and family values, just as his mom taught him years ago. Brian is clinically competent in Spanish and also speaks Vietnamese.

Prior to medical school she worked as a senior research assistant in a molecular medicine laboratory at OHSU, volunteered in the ED, and was a salsa dance instructor in Portland. She also met and married her husband, an engineer in water resources. While in medical school, Audra busied herself with the groups Physicians for Human Rights and SNMA, and enjoyed becoming a new mom to a fantastic little boy.
