Dr. Gabram is an expert in the surgical treatment of breast cancer and management of patients at high risk for breast cancer. She has been regularly recognized by Castle Connolly, Atlanta Magazine, and Women's Health as a top doctor. In 2005, she was recruited by Dr. Otis Brawley to lead the AVON Comprehensive Breast Center of the Grady Health System. In 2009, she became the principal investigator of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University's AVON Foundation Grant, a role in which she is working to decrease disparities in breast cancer care through community education outreach and by providing access to high quality care for all breast cancer patients in the Grady Health System. She was also appointed deputy director of the Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence at Grady that same year. As of October 2011, she is chief of the Division of Emory Surgery at Grady as well as the hospital's surgeon-in-chief. Her current research activities are focused on improving care for patients at the Avon Breast Center at Grady through such measures as addressing the rehabilitation needs of breast cancer patients, participating in a study of an on-line decision-making tool for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, and measuring the impact of various quality metrics/algorithms on patient care at Grady.
