Amazing Alumni - Dr. Ricky Bloomfield, '02
Mobile technologies have become integrated into all parts of our lives, from keeping us entertained to helping us monitor our biofeedback. NC State alumnus and Park Scholar Dr. Ricky Bloomfield has been on the forefront of developing meaningful mobile and social networking technologies that help people of all ages improve their health. In addition to working as a physician in Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, Bloomfield is the CEO of G-Whizz! Apps, a small software company with more than 15 million downloads, and led the development of Autism and Beyond, a groundbreaking Duke ResearchKit study designed to increase knowledge about how autism manifests in children. Bloomfield, now at Apple on their Health team, will discuss his career path and his perspective on the exciting advances in mobile health technologies.
