Bailey A. Hendricks, BSN, RN is pursuing research in breast cancer under her mentor Dr. Marie Bakitas. She plans to focus on psychosocial oncology/palliative care among breast cancer patients. Her late mother’s breast cancer diagnosis inspired her to help other women in the same situation.
She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing with a minor in Spanish from The University of Alabama at Birmingham.
After her recent graduation from the BSN program she decided to continue her education as a full-time student. During her time in the undergraduate Nursing Honors Program, she had the privilege of working with the late Dr. Karen Meneses on research projects in the young breast cancer survivor population.
Hendricks lives in Birmingham, AL.
