Our story

Vida was founded in 2014 to treat the root causes of obesity and diabetes through personalized care, integrated mental health support, and the power of human connection.

Cardiometabolic diseases, like obesity and type 2 diabetes, are all too common among Americans. Nearly half of US adults have obesity and one in ten have type 2 diabetes. Those preventable conditions cost over a trillion dollars in healthcare expenses every year. We can do better. At Vida, we’re on a mission to prevent, treat, and even eradicate chronic cardiometabolic diseases — and their staggering costs.
