ERGOT’s Douglas Mogul, MD MPH led a team to create the new Facebook application: Liver Space. Mogul wanted to create a community that connected pediatric liver disease patients and their families and provided them with useful information.

“It’s designed to strengthen online communities, serving as a bridge to health care providers and a portal for conducting research,” Mogul told Sarah Richards at Johns Hopkins.

Mogul is currently in talks about creating a similar site for patients with kidney disease.
