Health2047 Spin Out Launches with $2M to Build Platform for People Living with Prediabetes

Health2047 Inc., an American Medical Association-backed company that develops and commercializes solutions to transform healthcare at the system level, today announced the spin out of First Mile Care. With $2M in seed funding, First Mile Care is a preventive chronic care startup that is building an affordable, scalable and sustainable platform to improve the lives of people who have prediabetes.

Development is already underway for First Mile Care’s initial platform offering is based on the proven National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) method developed by the CDC, which enables community-based peer-to-peer connection for chronic conditions. The platform will give people living with prediabetes – higher-than-normal blood sugar level but not yet type 2 diabetes – the ongoing support they need to make lifestyle decisions that can reverse prediabetes and reduce the risk that their condition will develop into type 2 diabetes.
