DENVER (AP) - A 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.

Other Coloradans also were invited to the speech. 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.

Obama made a reference to Aurora families in his address, saying they deserve a vote by Congress on gun proposals.
