Who is Miga?

We prevent and manage obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes, using medications and intensive lifestyle interventions.
Our clinical care is delivered over video visits and async chat by physicians, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), registered dietitians, and health coaches.
Care is augmented by a character-driven, gamified app, connected devices, and our own tech platform that enables scalable, efficient, and high-quality clinical services.
