DENVER (AP) – A Colorado doctor who created a health care app was among those sitting with the first lady during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.

Peter Hudson of Evergreen co-founded iTriage. He helped create an app that people can use to find health care providers to treat them based on their symptoms. The app can also store personal health records and provide information on medications.

Hudson had his photo taken in the White House before Obama spoke Tuesday.

Other Coloradans also were invited to hear Obama. The mother and uncle of AJ Boik, who was killed in the Aurora movie theater shooting, received tickets from Reps. Ed Perlmutter and Diana DeGette. Colorado Springs Fire Chief Rich Brown and his wife, Lori, were invited as Sen. Michael Bennet’s guests.
