Title

UMBC Alumni Association Annual Awards program

Description

The Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award was established in 1988 to honor an alumnus or alumna who had achieved national recognition in his or her field. The first award was presented to Dr. Winston Griner �74, biological sciences, for his innovations in home health care. After graduating from Meharry Medical College in Nashville in 1978, Griner remained in Tennessee and established a house-call only practice - the only physician listed by the Nashville Academy of Medicine to be doing so. While others insisted that his business was impractical and unsustainable, Griner was able to develop relationships with his patients and closely monitor and assist them in their recovery.
