JDRF ISPAD fellowship 2019


Paul Enlow

was awarded the ISPAD JDRF Fellowship for 2019

Paul Enlow, Ph.D. is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Center for Healthcare Delivery Science (CHDS) and Pediatric Psychologist in the Division of Behavioral Health at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children (N/AIDHC) in Wilmington, Delaware (USA). He earned his Ph.D. in Psychology at West Virginia University under the mentorship of Christina Duncan, Ph.D. Dr. Enlow completed his Psychology Residency in the Division of Behavioral Health at N/AIDHC, which included a rotation with an interdisciplinary type 1 diabetes (T1D) care team.

After his residency, Dr. Enlow pursued a post-doctoral fellowship in the CHDS under the mentorship of Dr. Tim Wysocki and Dr. Melissa Alderfer that focused on pediatric T1D research. As a fellow, he contributed to two NIDDK-funded randomized control trials that aimed to improve health and psychosocial outcomes in youth with T1D. The first study, led by Drs. Wysocki and Alderfer, aimed to develop and test a transdisciplinary model of care for adolescents with T1D. The second study, led by Dr. Wysocki and Dr. Jessica Pierce, tested how access to an online intervention for parents of very young children with T1D affected parent and child psychosocial outcomes and child health outcomes.

Currently, Dr. Enlow conducts research with youth with T1D and has a specific interest in improving the access to, and optimal use of, diabetes technologies (e.g., Smart Pumps, Continuous Glucose Monitoring [CGM]). As a fellow, he received a Nemours Biomedical Research Fellows Award to test the feasibility of using ecological momentary assessment to understand barriers to CGM use. Dr. Enlow also received a Mentored Research Development Award from the Delaware Clinical and Translational Research Center. This award provides dedicated time to work with a team of mentors to write a grant proposal focused on improving CGM use in youth with T1D.

With the generous support of the JDRF-ISPAD Research Fellowship, Dr. Enlow will use qualitative interviews to understand patient, caregiver and provider perceptions of the mechanisms underlying racial/ethnic disparities in the use of diabetes technologies. Dr. Enlow will conduct this work in the Nemours CHDS under the mentorship of Dr. Alderfer and with a multidisciplinary team, including experts in pediatric endocrinology (Anthony Gannon, M.D.), behavioral T1D research (Susana Patton, Ph.D.), health disparities research (Kirk Dabney, M.D.) and research with electronic health records (Tim Bunnell, Ph.D.).
