A little more on GOLD's guests...
Chumi Khurana is a female champion in the men’s health landscape. She has been on the forefront of men’s health advocacy as the Global Head of the Prostate Cancer Disease Area Stronghold for Janssen Oncology. With almost 25 years of patient-centered experience in the pharmaceutical industry, Chumi has elevated Janssen’s position in the PCa landscape, providing programs and strategies to increase access and usage of J&J’s landmark best-in-class medicines, and also expanded awareness and provided innovative services and programs to caregivers. Chumi has stated that “While the shame and sense of helplessness on the part of men with prostate cancer has manifested itself as a barrier to treatment, we have always felt that it was not just a man’s isolated issue – partners (men and women) and caregivers play a major role in advancing their care.”
