Upcoming Events

On May 15th, Hawk University will host a screening of the documentary “Like” from 6:00-8:00 in the Milford High School Auditorium. The website for the film explains the purpose and goal for making the documentary in this way:

“LIKE is an IndieFlix Original documentary and series that explores the impact of social media on our lives. The goal of the film is to show that social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care but is that what’s really happening? Technology is here to stay.  By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.

The goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages but especially kids to self regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other.”

This event is FREE for all parents, guardians and their children (ages 10 and up). We encourage families to attend this event to explore the role social media plays in our lives and the impact it has on our relationships. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion including the following professionals:

Dr. Felix Perriello, Milford School District Physician

Mr. Josh Otlin, Milford High School Principal

Ms. Joani Geltman, Curry College - Child development & Parenting Expert

Ms. Amy Leone,  MS, MA, LMHC - Community Health Counselor & Founder of Community Impact

"In a mere 48 minutes, LIKE alerts us to these dangers, yet instills the hope that by improving how we relate to our devices, we necessarily improve the world. Our here-and-now relationships, as well as the daily lives of future generations, fundamentally depend on our mindful use and ethical development of technology."  ~ Dr. Joe Dilly (Psychologist and the Cofounder of Synergy Psychological)
