Welcome Hayley Bierman

Dear Patients,

It is my pleasure to inform you that Hayley Bierman has accepted the position as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in my clinic. Hayley has worked in the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute’s Infusion 4 clinic since 2012 providing care to our patients undergoing chemotherapy and stem cell transplantation.  Patients and caregivers can reach her via email at or call the clinic phone nurses at 501-686-8230.

Hayley replaces Kristen Carter, APRN, who recently left UAMS for another opportunity. I appreciate all of Kristen’s unwavering dedication to our patients and her tireless work through the years.  We will certainly miss her and wish her all the best in her new career. Please note that the phone number previously used to contact Kristen is no longer in service but the clinic nurse call line is 501-686-8230.

While the faces may change, the lifesaving, cutting-edge treatment for myeloma and related diseases you receive at the UAMS Myeloma Center will continue as before.
