To date, The Wright Center has completed more than 4,000 screens within its Mid Valley practice and additional primary care venues (including student health settings serving higher education and medical students). Under her leadership, The Wright Center became a national leader in the GLS Youth Suicide Prevention in Primary Care program due to patient and provider team engagement with notable top leadership commitment, high provider team satisfaction and global acknowledgment of the value of the process. Her solution-oriented innovations in graduate medical education and primary care have been well-recognized organizationally, regionally and nationally, and have also been spread throughout partnering healthcare organizations.
