5 minutes with Brian Bernick,
the co-founder and CEO of TherapeuticsMD

What motivated you to found TherapeuticsMD?

The founding of TherapeuticsMD was really just an extension of my life's work. I've spent the last 25 years focused on women's health. As a physician, I was frustrated by the limited commitment to drug development in this space, so I created TherapeuticsMD, which has a commitment to women’s health and a mission to provide better experiences for women and their healthcare providers.

What challenges do you see in women's healthcare right now?

Patients and healthcare providers are demanding products that are more comfortable, more convenient, and of course more affordable.

What goals have you set for TherapeuticsMD that will help improve women's healthcare?

Our goals are threefold:

    1. Provide better experiences for women and their healthcare providers
    2. Take a comprehensive approach to women's health by offering them products that serve women across their lifespan
    3. Make products suitable for millions of women
