“WW Health Solutions continues to be a key strategic growth lever for our business and we will now also focus on the broader healthcare market and diabetes as a core WW consumer proposition,” he said Nick Hotchkin, WW Chief Operating Officer. “We are very excited to add Adam to the team. In addition to his extensive diabetes expertise, he has a unique experience in applying technology to improve health services.”

Adam joins WW from DTxL, the joint venture between Boston Consulting Group and Abundant Venture Partners, where he led its rollout as a leading provider of digital therapeutics. Previously, Adam spent five years at Canary Health overseeing the launch of a new online business offering and mobile-tech enabled health services.

“I am very excited to join the WW team to lead these important growth initiatives and expand support from the healthcare ecosystem,” he said Adam Kaufman. “In the USA. More than 30 million people live with diabetes alone. Despite the high correlation between obesity and type 2 diabetes, the population is underrepresented in the WW community.
