Dr. Voils is a Research Career Scientist at the William S Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital in Madison, WI and the Morgridge Distinguished Chair in Health Services Research and Director of the Wisconsin Surgical Outcomes Research Program in the Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Voils received her PhD in experimental social psychology from the University of Kentucky in 2001. From 2002-2004, she was a postdoctoral fellow in HSR&D at the Durham VA Medical Center. She was funded by an HSR&D Merit Review Entry Program award from 2004-2007.

Dr. Voils' research, which has been funded by HSR&D, NIH, and AHRQ, falls into three areas: (1) behavioral interventions for improving cardiovascular risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, and dyslipidemia ; (2) genomics health services research; and (3) methodology development. She was the PI of HSR&D-funded trials to evaluate a spouse-assisted intervention for reducing patient cholesterol levels (IIR 05-273); evaluate the clinical utility of genetic testing for type 2 diabetes (IIR 09-039); evaluate a weight loss maintenance intervention (IIR 11-040); and evaluate the effectiveness of using patient-entered family health history information and decision support to improve risk-appropriate cancer screening rates (IIR 12-378). With NIH funding, Dr. Voils has developed methods for synthesizing qualitative and quantitative research findings. She also led the development and validation of the DOSE-Nonadherence measure, which has been translated into several languages and is being disseminated in research and clinical settings internationally. In addition to conducting research, Dr. Voils mentors several postdoctoral fellows and early-career faculty, including recipients of career development awards from HSR&D and the NIH. Dr. Voils is a Fellow of the Society of Behavioral Medicine and the Program Director for the OBSSR/NIH Summer Institute on Randomized Clinical Trials Involving Behavioral Interventions.
