Victoria L. Holt
Ph.D., University of Washington, 1990.
Dr. Holt's primary research interests are in the areas of reproductive epidemiology and intimate partner violence. Research projects include the impact of oral contraceptive use on ovarian cyst formation, the epidemiology of adenomyosis and endometriosis (with emphasis on reproductive and contraceptive risk factors), recent trends in ectopic pregnancy rates, and the association between body mass index and oral contraceptive failure. Dr. Holt also participates in several research projects concerning intimate partner violence, including the effects of protection orders and the justice system response to violence on the likelihood of subsequent violence and injury.
