Wrenetha Julion, PhD's current research focuses on providing culturally relevant parent training to low-income families of color. Together with Drs. Deborah Gross and Christine Garvey, she is the co-author of the Chicago Parent Program, a videotape-based parent education program, plus manual currently being implemented in Day Care and Head Start centers in Chicago. Julion is co-investigator on a NIH/NINR funded R01 NR04085-11 (D. Gross, PI) 07/01/06-06/30/11 titled: Engaging Low-Income Parents in Prevention Programs. The purpose of this study is to test the cost-effectiveness of giving a discount on parents' childcare co-payments contingent upon attendance in a preventive parenting intervention.

Additionally, Julion conducts research with African American fathers. Her dissertation research was focused on learning more about father involvement in African American non-resident fathers. She is the author of the Julion Index of Paternal Involvement (JIPI), a research instrument designed to measure the extent to which fathers are involved with their children in 19 activities important to positive child outcomes. Julion is also a clinical instructor in the Women and Children's Health Nursing course; and co-course director of Nursing Research courses for both graduate and doctoral level nursing students. She also serves as academic advisor for Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and graduate entry master's (GEM) students.
