Hi, everyone, welcome back to Mastering the Menopause Transition Summit. I’m your host, Dr. Sharon Stills. As always, a pleasure, a pleasure to be here with you. And we’re gonna have a really good talk today about a topic that’s probably at some point has been on your mind, and we’re gonna get some good answers. We all hear about genetics and epigenetics, and how it makes a difference and how our health plays out. And so I’ve got the man here to talk with us through it today and how it relates to you and your hormone. So I’m very happy and honored to be joined by Kashif Khan. He’s the chief executive offer and founder of The DNA Company, where personalized medicine is being pioneered through unique insights into the human genome. He’s also the host of the Unpilled podcast. 


Growing up in Vancouver, Canada in an immigrant household, he developed an industrious entrepreneurial spirit from a young age. Prior to his tenure at The DNA Company, he advised a number of high growth startups in a variety of industries. As he dove into the field of functional genomics as the CEO of The DNA Company, it was revealed that his neural wiring was actually genetically designed to be entrepreneurial. However, his genes also revealed a particular sensitivity to pollutants. Now seeing his health from a new lens, Kashif drove further and further and started to see the genetic pathways that led to his own family’s challenges and the opportunities to reverse chronic disease. His measure of success is not in dollars earned, but in lives improved. I love that, I didn’t know that about you. Welcome. It’s really great to have you here.
