Enzo Plaitano is a PhD student at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice and a Predoctoral Fellow at the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health. His main research examines digital-behavioral therapeutics for young adults with type 1 diabetes with his advisor, Dr. Catherine Stanger.
He is interested in using interactive smartphone applications, digital health coaching, and behavior change technologies to help patients manage their acute and chronic health conditions. Enzo holds a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Boston University and a Professional Degree in Paramedicine from the University of Pittsburgh Center for Emergency Medicine.
