Brian Frank, MD is an assistant professor and full-time clinician in the department of family medicine at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR. Since 2011 he has had the good fortune to provide care to multi-generational families and individuals in all stages of life at the OHSU’s Family Medicine Clinic at Richmond, a federally qualified health center for low-income families.  His clinical interests are focused on promoting health equity through collaboration between primary care, community stakeholders, and policy makers.  Outside of his clinical duties, Brian is a member of the Health Equity Tactic Team for Family Medicine for America’s Health where he leads research demonstrating a return on investment to businesses that support the health equity of their employees and the communities they serve. Brian was a 2016-17 Clinical Innovation Fellow with the Oregon Health Authority where he led projects designed to identify and reduce the prevalence of food insecurity in primary care clinics.  Outside of work, Brian is an avid home (read: amateur) chef.  He has been experimenting in the kitchen since his first attempt at making a cake at the age of five (flour, sugar, milk, chocolate chips). Fortunately, he is a quick learner. He is rarely happier than when in the kitchen, preparing food for his family and friends. (Portland, OR)
