Janssen Biotech have teamed up with Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, producer and prostate cancer survivor Charlie Wilson to raise awareness among African-American men and their families about prostate cancer. Making Awareness a Priority: Putting Prostate Cancer on the M.A.P brings together leading voices to advocate health problems and education. With the highest incidence of prostate cancer of any race in the U.S., African-American men are 2.4 times more likely to die from the disease than Caucasian men. “African-American men are at a greater risk for prostate cancer and it is important that we support the African-American community with information that is both relevant and compelling,” said Robert Bazemore, President, Janssen Biotech, Inc. “Janssen Biotech is pleased to join Charlie Wilson and our local community partners to provide those who are at high-risk of, or living with, prostate cancer with the resources they need to help them navigate all aspects of their cancer journey.”
