Meet Dr. Ken Ward
April 25, 2017
Hello, Owlet Community! I’m excited to introduce myself and start a dialogue about all of the innovative work we have going on at Owlet. My name is Ken Ward. As a Perinatologist and a Geneticist, I have assisted at more than 8,000 births, many for babies at-risk. Throughout my career, I have advocated for empowering parents of newborns and for providing health information through user-friendly tools such as the internet and mobile phone apps.
Recently, I joined the Owlet team as Medical Director. I have turned down many similar positions in the past, but I accepted the Owlet invitation because I was so impressed with the potential of the Owlet Smart Sock to make an important difference in the lives of parents and their babies. In addition, I am impressed with the commitment of the Owlet founders to make a baby monitor that is designed for, and more accessible and appropriate in the home.
I look forward to being a part of the Owlet team and answering any questions you may have regarding Owlet. I encourage you to submit any questions and I will respond them via this forum. For my first post, I’d like to address a question we frequently receive regarding Owlet and traditional pulse oximeters.
