ImpactAlpha, January 9 — St. Paul, Minn.-based Herself Health is looking to deliver advanced primary care to women with Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans. Older women, particularly socioeconomically disadvantaged and minority women, experience a higher burden of chronic illness, disability and comorbidity than men.

Herself Health is looking to “break the mold of one-size-fits-most healthcare, which traditionally falls short of providing the best care for women,” said Herself Health’s Kristen Helton, and “empower women to keep growing bolder in mind, body, and spirit at any age.”

The seed investment round was led by founding partner Juxtapose, a New York-based investment firm. Herself Health plans to take an omnichannel approach, creating home-based and virtual care touchpoints. The company opened its first clinic in Minneapolis last week.
