Patricia works at UAMS with the Thoracic Surgery Oncology team and sees lung and esophageal cancer patients.  She has been a nurse practitioner for 15 years.  A major focus of her work has been the startup of the Low Dose CT screening program at UAMS, which has been in existence since 2014.  Since then, she has provided tobacco-cessation counseling onsite to help others become tobacco free.  In addition, she has initiated the “Freedom From Smoking” Groups to provide community members, employees and patients the skills to quit.

Patricia graduated in 1987 with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then 2003 with her Masters in Nursing and has a broad nursing background working with cardiology, internal medicine and now oncology.  Throughout this experience, she has encountered many disease processes that are impacted by smoking.  This has motivated her to attempt to intervene.
