Join the UK Linguistics Departmen for the 2nd Annual Linguistics Homecoming featuring Sarah Marks, Linguistics Class of 1999. Sarah Tully Marks, MD, MA, FAAFP graduated from UK with a Bachelor of Arts degree in linguistics and English. She received her Master of Arts in linguistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and then returned to UK for medical school. She completed her family medicine residency at St. Joseph Family Medicine Residency in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Throughout it all, she has taught undergraduates, medical students, residents, and students throughout the health professions. Her teaching and clinical interests continue to be informed by her love of language. After recently speaking to family medicine residents about how language affects our colleagues and patients, she has reflected on its role throughout her life and career. She will come speak to those reflections and the importance her linguistics training has had at various stages of her life and career.
