Biography

Dr. Lynn Fiellin is recognized for excellence and leadership in clinical research and as a leader and innovator at YSM as founder/director of both the play2PREVENT (p2P) Lab at the Yale Center for Health & Learning Games and the ForAGirl summer program. She has also distinguished herself with her hospital leadership role as Fitkin Firm Chief at Yale New Haven Hospital as well as in a national role as a Founding Member of TIME'S UP Healthcare, a national organization focused on ensuring safe and equitable work places for women in healthcare. She has excelled as an educator, mentor, and role model in these programs.

Dr. Fiellin has created programs that specifically target impact on youth and young adults, on a local/community and national/international level. In the p2P Lab she established a premiere videogames research program of collaborating researchers, game developers, and community partners who develop and evaluate video game interventions targeting HIV prevention and smoking prevention in adolescents. She has received National Institutes of Health, foundation, and industry funding to build this lab. Dr. Fiellin's program has garnered considerable interest from students and trainees. Because of this interest and given her focus on supporting and promoting the personal and professional growth of girls and women, she created For A Girl, a summer program housed in her lab. There is a well-documented failure to attract girls and young women to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Dr. Fiellin established ForAGirl as a novel, multifaceted program that focuses on promoting girls' engagement in STEM, medicine, and research. In addition to these innovative programs, she has focused on mentoring women trainees and faculty as a critical aspect of her work.
