With $2M seed funding, Health2047 spin out targets scalable diabetes prevention programs

Health2047, a technology innovation enterprise backed the American Medical Association, announced today the launch of its second spin out company. Called First Mile Care, the new entity will use its $2 million in seed funding to build a scalable platform for connecting people with prediabetes to coaches and demographic-appropriate behavior change guidance.

First Mile Care’s platform is being developed on the framework of the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program, a coaching-based lifestyle change program long shown to reduce the risk of prediabetes to Type 2 diabetes progression.
