Prior to joining Byrne Pelofsky, Frank served as Deputy Director of the City of Kansas City, Missouri (KCMO) Health Department where he managed over $30,000,000 in annual “safety net” contracts with local hospitals, Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers (FQHC) and other medical care providers to provide medical services for uninsured/underinsured residents.

During his 24 years with the KCMO Health Department, Frank supervised work on chronic diseases, HIV, violence prevention, community engagement and public health accreditation.
