Lakesha Deshun Tillman, MSN, FNP-C, is a family nurse practitioner in trauma surgery at Regional One Health. Tillman received her master’s degree from University of Memphis.

“I thoroughly enjoy providing care for my patients,” Tillman shared. “Being a trauma nurse practitioner allows me to be integral in treating complex injuries that are often times coupled with chronic comorbidities.”
