Apple hires obstetrician Christine Curry to focus on women's health


The Apple Watch Series 4 came to the market with a function to be able to perform electrocardiograms directly from our wrist, a function that allows us to control our health even more. In recent years, we are seeing how Apple is focusing on trying to offer us mechanisms to detect health problems. The latest signing focuses specifically on women.

According to CNBC, Apple has recruited Dr. Christine Curry to focus on women's health, something that should not surprise us, considering that she is not the first doctor to actively collaborate with Apple to improve your monitoring systems and implement new functions on each new generation of Apple Watch.

Perform ECG Apple Watch

According to CNBC, Apple has hired dozens of physicians to work on a wide variety of projects including its "AC Wellness Clinics" for Apple employees. The work of Dr. Christine it will focus on women, but will also work on other aspects in which the company is working, according to people related to the hiring.

At the time of publishing this article, Dr. Curry has not updated her LinkedIn profile to reflect the change that Apple hiring has brought to her career. In the past, Curry has been a GP for pregnant women focusing much of its effort on the victims of the Zika virus in South Florida.

Women's health is an area that is often overlooked, including Apple as when the company first launched its HealthKit service in 2015 and claimed it offered "comprehensive" health tracking, but it did not include reproductive health.

The Apple Watch has become on its own merits the best smartwatch currently available on the market, Due largely to the new functions it offers us, being the ECG function and the fall warning, the two main functions added by the fourth generation of the Apple Watch.
