Dr. Corrine Williams is the Interim Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Health, Behavior & Society. Her research has focused on the field of intimate partner violence and reproductive health consequences experienced by adult women. Dr. Williams is also the current Associate Vice President of Student Well-being at the University of Kentucky.

As an EIS officer at the National Center for Health Statistics, she developed extensive experience with the management and analysis of large databases with complicated study designs, and continues conducting secondary data analysis of large, national datasets.

Dr. Williams serves as the evaluator of the Kentucky Health Access Nurturing Development Services (HANDS) program, a statewide voluntary intensive home visitation program for high-risk (including young maternal age), primarily low-income parents. The program provides services from the prenatal period to the child's third birthday.

With a joint appointment in OB/GYN, she has also worked on the implementation and evaluation of universal psychosocial screening, including domestic violence screening, of all new prenatal care patients in UK HealthCare clinics.
