Written by 

Marianthe Grammas, M.D., assistant professor in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care, is a junior faculty winner of the Dean’s Excellence Award in Service.

Grammas, who joined UAB in 2013, is medical director of the UAB House Calls Program, medical director of the UAB Geriatric Medicine Clinic at UAB Highlands Hospital and physician advisor for care transitions in the UAB Health System. Katrina Booth, M.D., assistant professor in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care, said that under Grammas’ leadership, the UAB House Calls Program, which provides services for older, homebound adults, has expanded to high-touch, in-home care for vulnerable adults who often have high burden of diseases, functional impairments, and limited economic or social resources—all factors that contribute to high utilization of emergency and inpatient services.
