Amber D. Harrison Designs App for the Chronically Ill During Pandemic

April 23, 2021

Amber D. Harrison (BFA ‘12) is excited to announce the release of Symptom Shark, a free symptom tracking app to help chronically ill patients.

Harrison, whose previous work focused on metalsmithing, applied her love of functional design to the world of technology. Due to her own experience with the healthcare system, she was inspired to help people who need a simple and accessible way to communicate accurate data to their health providers. Symptom Shark was created to help the patient be their own advocate - the power of efficient design allows a more accurate diagnosis or treatment plan.

The Symptom Shark app was built in partnership with CareEvolution, an Ann Arbor based healthcare technology company.
