Berkman Center Luncheon Series with Tony Ferraro and David Stone


Tuesday, May 1, 12:30 pm
Berkman Center Conference Room
23 Everett Street, Second Floor, Cambridge, MA

Guest: Tony Ferraro and David Stone
Topic: Applications of Social Networking Technology to Medical Treatment

Social networks on the Internet are relatively new. Facebook was launched just a few years ago at Harvard, for example. Social networking technology is now finding application in a range of areas including business, education and in medical applications. Global corporations are using it to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time, tailored to their specific needs. This technology is also being implemented to help medical staff serve refugee populations such as those served by Richard Mollica, MD of the Harvard Trauma Center.

The Berkman Center is proud to have the opportunity to host a presentation by Tony Ferraro, President and CEO of 360Hubs and Dr. David Stone, a practicing psychologist, former Harvard Fellow in computer science and now a Visiting Scholar in GSAS who will speak about applications of social networking technology to the treatment of trauma survivors. Mr. Ferraro and Dr. Stone are currently working on a project that integrates the technology developed by Professor Ron Deibert’s team in Toronto, social networking technology from Mr. Ferraro’s company, and best practices in the treatment of trauma survivors (such as those at Virginia Tech), torture survivors and refugee populations.
