She has dedicated her career to community engagement and the elimination of health inequities and health disparities as they relate to African Americans living in rural populations—especially those with chronic diseases such as sickle cell disease. Her research and practice focus on discovering how healthcare delivery systems, public health, formal and informal community organizations, and participants come together to more effectively address health inequities/disparities in rural areas as well as how research related to community capacity can contribute to addressing health disparities.

Dr. Lawrence is currently serving as an Assistant Professor of Community Health in the Jiann Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University (GSU). Dr. Lawrence holds both a DrPH in Community Health Behavior and Education and an MPH in Community Health from GSU.
