9am.health, a San Diego, CA-based virtual diabetes clinic that delivers personalized, affordable, and compassionate care directly to consumers, raised $16m in Series A funding.
The round, which brought total funding to date to nearly $20m, was co-led by 7Wire Ventures and Human Capital and included participation from new investors StartUp Health and Leaps by Bayer, and existing investors Define Ventures and Founders Fund.
The company plans to use the funds for growth in its pharmacy and clinical services, including more medication. It also intends to build out a network of platform and partner partners to integrate medical devices and platforms across the country.
