CEO & Co-Founder at TREND Community


Maria Picone is the Co-Founder and CEO of TREND Community. TREND is a digital health analytics company with a bold vision to revolutionize the world’s understanding of diseases. Maria and her husband Chris started TREND together after their daughter was born with a rare disease called Prader-Willi syndrome. TREND’s technology analyzes social media conversations to understand diseases from patient, caregiver, and care partner perspectives. These valuable insights can shed light on aspects of our health conditions that even our most qualified doctors and scientists couldn’t possibly know.
