Joe Duvall '16, Computer Science

This was the second summer I spent working with Professor Rick Zaccone and a team from the Geisinger Obesity Institute on Get~2~Goal, an iOS app that acts as a tool for bariatric surgery patients. This summer we integrated Apple's HealthKit framework into Get~2~Goal, enabling patients to interact with their health data in other apps. We also added a new section to the app highlighting patient stories, where current and prospective patients can read stories from others who have undergone the surgery themselves. Finally, we added a new, friendlier welcome experience to the app, which should greatly improve our users' initial experience with our app.

It has been a very rewarding experience to work for a client on something that is used by many people and has great potential to improve people's lives, even more so because it also enabled me to explore my passion for iOS development. I am incredibly appreciative of the opportunity provided by Professor Zaccone, Bucknell University and the Geisinger Obesity Institute.
