The Northeast Node and its parent organization, the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College, are pleased to welcome Lynn Fiellin, MD, as a Node Core Investigator and faculty professor of Biomedical Data Science, Medicine, and the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
Dr. Fiellin joins us from the Child Study Center and the School of Public Health at Yale. She is the founding director of the play2PREVENT Lab and of Playbl, Inc. Specifically, her work focuses on developing and testing novel videogame interventions to promote health and reduce risk in youth and young adults. She has received funding from the NIH, the FDA, and the CVS Health Foundation to conduct this work. She and her team of researchers, game developers, youth and community partners have created and evaluated interactive evidence-based digital games addressing mental health, opioid misuse, smoking/vaping, and sexual health and HIV/STI prevention.
The Northeast Node is proud to add Dr. Fiellin to our Node’s Core Investigators and look forward to further opportunities to join her important work with that of the CTN.
