Virta Health is on a mission to transform type 2 diabetes and weight-loss care. Current treatment approaches aren’t working—over half of US adults have either type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, and obesity rates are at an all-time high. Virta is changing this by helping people reverse their metabolic condition through innovations in technology, personalized nutrition, and virtual care delivery reinvented from the ground up. We have raised over $350 million from top-tier investors, and partner with the largest health plans, employers, and government organizations to help their employees and members restore their health and take back their lives. Join us on our mission to reverse diabetes in 100 million people.

Weight loss drugs, nutrition, and health/wellness are some of the leading topics driving consumer, business, and pop culture conversations. Much of the discussion is generated by and evolving on social media channels, creating a massive opportunity for Virta to participate in and lead the conversation.
