Carol J. Boyd is an internationally recognized scholar in the studies of gender, vulnerable populations, and risky health behaviors (e.g. smoking, misuse of medications, alcohol abuse, and other substance abuse). She is noted for mixed-method studies, including evaluation research for the State of Michigan and for Michigan schools. Her most recent studies, funded by the National Institutes of Health, are school-based and focus on adolescent and young adult populations and their lifestyle behaviors, with a particular focus on the medications they are prescribed and how they are used and misused.

Professor Boyd received her PhD in nursing with an anthropology cognate from Wayne State University (1987).
