Our Mission

FORM is on a mission to ensure that all patients have access to evidence-based obesity care

FORM patients work 1:1 with an obesity medicine Doctor and Registered Dietitian to achieve their weight loss and health goals. The FORM Care Team creates a personalized plan that addresses lifestyle change and includes a prescription for FDA-approved medication, if appropriate. All care is provided virtually, making it accessible to everyone.


Over 42% of US adults are living with obesity


Obesity was recognized as a disease by the American Medical Association in 2013


As little as 5% weight loss lowers blood pressure and A1c


Our clinical care model

FORM patients work 1:1 with a doctor who is a diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) and a Registered Dietitian who is a Certified Specialist in Obesity and Weight Management (CSOWM). FORM clinicians take an evidence-based approach to obesity care by creating a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan for each patient that addresses nutrition, physical activity, and mindset shifts and includes a prescription for FDA-approved medication, as appropriate. 

FORM doctors use their expertise to leverage all the tools in the obesity medicine toolkit including GLP-1s and lower cost medications. Medication decisions take into consideration what’s best for each patient clinically as well as what’s accessible within their insurance plan and budget.

Our Story

Evan Richardson founded FORM in 2019 after a career working at the intersection of health tech and health tech investing. He saw an opportunity to leverage technology and recent weight loss-related pharmacological innovations to deliver evidence-based care that could meaningfully address the obesity epidemic. Dr. Florencia Halperin joined shortly after as Chief Medical Officer to define the clinical model and build the clinical team. Dr. Halperin had previously served as Founder and Co-Director of the Center for Weight Management and Metabolic Surgery and Brigham and Women’s Hospital and was excited about the opportunity to leverage virtual care to expand her impact. 

Today Evan and Dr. Halperin lead a team of dedicated professionals and expert clinicians who are committed to helping patients achieve sustained weight loss so they can live healthier and happier lives.
