LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Dr. Jerome Adams, the 20th Surgeon General of the United States, has joined the advisory board for Thrive365, a company founded to improve the health journey of millions of individuals who live with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.
“Type 2 diabetes is not just a source of often preventable morbidity and mortality, but a driver of both healthcare spending and workforce inefficiency,” said Dr. Adams. “Intervening early, often, and effectively is key to limiting the negative impacts of type 2 diabetes. Data on Thrive365 has shown it can be a powerful intervention tool.”
Dr. Adams led the Indiana State Department of Health before becoming U.S. Surgeon General for the Trump Administration. He currently heads Purdue University’s Health Equity Initiatives as Executive Director and is one of many distinguished healthcare professionals supporting Thrive365 and its health initiatives.
“My father passed away from complications of type 2 diabetes, and I know how deeply this condition affects individuals and their families. That’s why our mission to provide these powerful life-changing tools and resources is so important,” said Thrive365 Founder and CEO Kirk Howell. “We are honored to have Dr. Adams on our Advisory Board and welcome the knowledge, experience and unique perspectives that he brings.”
Accessible digitally through web and mobile platforms, Thrive365 provides food scores that help people make healthier food choices, allowing individuals living with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes to achieve healthier blood glucose levels. The food scoring solution was specifically developed, tested and clinically evaluated for people living with type 2 diabetes.
Dr. Richard Black, former Global Chief Nutrition Officer for Kraft Foods and PepsiCo, was the lead inventor for the patented food scoring solution and serves as Thrive365’s Chief Nutrition Advisor.
