Corrine Voils, PhD
Dr. Voils completed her MS and PhD in Experimental Social Psychology at the University of Kentucky. Her research focuses on identifying behavioral strategies to promote treatment adherence. One line of research focuses on promoting adoption and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Voils was previously the Principal Investigator (PI) of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the effectiveness of a partner-assisted intervention for cholesterol management (CouPLES) and a patient-oriented weight loss maintenance intervention (MAINTAIN). She is currently PI of Partner2Lose and Log2Lose.
A second line of research focuses on incorporating genomic/genetic information in healthcare delivery. Previously Dr. Voils was the PI of RCTs to evaluate the clinical utility of genetic testing for diabetes and of a family history platform to promote risk-concordant colorectal cancer screening. She is currently the PI of an evaluation of PHASER, a Veterans Affairs clinical program providing pharmacogenomic testing to veterans.
In addition to developing interventions to promote a healthy lifestyle, Dr. Voils created a self-report measure of medication nonadherence. To learn more, click here.
