Arivale Expands Scientific Wellness Program to California

Individuals across the state can now participate in a personalized,
systems-based, wellness program

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#scientificwellness–Arivale, a company dedicated to providing individuals a scientific path
to wellness, today announced its availability to residents in
California. Since July 2015, Arivale has helped individuals optimize
their wellness by creating individual, dynamic data clouds based on each
participant’s genetics, clinical labs, gut microbiome, sleep and
activity level.

What Arivale program participants, called Pioneers, find most useful is
they are assigned a professional, licensed health coach who, in
collaboration with an independent physician and clinical team,
translates the Pioneer’s data cloud into actionable recommendations to
assist in achieving their wellness goals. For each Pioneer, Arivale
creates a unique dashboard structured into six health dimensions:
diabetes risk, heart health, healthy aging, inflammation, optimal
nutrition and stress management. The Arivale Coach uses this dashboard
of scientific, personalized wellness as the foundation for developing
individualized action plans for Pioneers to optimize their wellness.

Co-founded by renowned genomics pioneer Leroy Hood, MD PhD, and CEO
Clayton Lewis, Arivale raised $36M in Series B funding in 2015 from
leading venture firms, Maveron,
Venture Partners
and Polaris

“The success of the Arivale program has exceeded all expectations —
based on Pioneer satisfaction, engagement and improvements in wellness,”
said Clayton Lewis. “We selected California as our second launch market
because we’ve received requests from across the state seeking a
data-based program to proactively optimize personalized wellness and we
are thrilled to offer our scientific approach to do just that.”

Arivale’s actionable recommendations, based on each Pioneer’s personal
goals, inspire them to achieve and sustain their wellness potential —
and enable them to focus on what they love in life, rather than fad
diets or trendy workouts.

“While your genetic profile can provide a solid understanding of your
unique makeup, genes are only one piece in determining your wellness,”
said Lewis. “Arivale provides participants with genetic information, and
more importantly takes it much further by correlating genetics with
clinical labs, lifestyle, nutrition and activity levels, which are the
primary drivers of scientific wellness. This systems approach provides
an integrated, scientific foundation for our participants that sets us
apart from any other programs.”

“Arivale is creating a new industry, scientific wellness — by combining
dense, dynamic, personal data clouds and coaching to optimize wellness,”
stated Dr. Hood. “These data clouds enable Arivale to integrate and
correlate genetic and lifestyle information to identify novel
discoveries and provide actionable recommendations for the Arivale
Pioneers. As we collect more data over time, we will work to
exponentially increase the number of actionable possibilities for
optimizing wellness.”
