MACM honors resident with Caldwell Award
Dr. Christina G. Marks, left, a senior resident in the Department of Radiology, receives the 2014 Robert S. Caldwell, M.D. Memorial Award from Dr. Earl T. Stubblefield, chairman of the Board of Directors for the Medical Assurance Company of Mississippi.
Nominated by UMMC faculty, Marks was recognized for her knowledge of medicine, excellence in care, and outstanding record documentation and leadership. The award also recognizes individuals considered to be avid teachers of medical students and fellow residents.
The award is given in memory of the late Dr. Robert S. Caldwell, a general surgeon from Tupelo who was instrumental in the founding of the MACM.
“In addition to being an excellent all-around diagnostic radiologist, Christina has a particular gift for caring for others,” said Dr. Anson Thaggard, assistant professor of radiology. “She does this with her peers, her staff, technical personnel and particularly with patients.
“She tends to go the extra mile to make sure that a finding is addressed or that a patient understand what is going on with a test or procedure.”
