LaNita Wright has research and practical experience primarily in teen pregnancy prevention, with special interest in African American communities. Her dissertation research focused on the predominately Black Church's role in preventing teen pregnancy. She conducted semi-structured, in-depth interviews with both pastors and parents to understand their perspectives. She presented information from the qualitative study with pastors at two national conferences (APHA and Healthy Teen Network) and the qualitative study with parents at one national conference (Healthy Teen Network). She also previously worked in a local health department where she facilitated teen pregnancy prevention programs in multiple school and community settings. In addition, she has and continues to facilitate teen pregnancy prevention workshops (and research) in predominantly Black Church settings.
