Erica Frank, MD, MPH, FACPM is an Affiliate Professor at UBC in German Studies and a Professor in the School of Population and Public Health, and the Department of Family Medicine.
Dr. Frank’s research primarily examines globally-scaled education interventions (especially in healthcare, public health, and STEM) and she is the Founder/Inventor (in 2001) of NextGenU.org (with learners registered in every country for free education and certificates).
In German Studies, her work concentrates on the experiences of descendants of Holocaust survivors, especially those who chosen to regain their citizenships (as she herself has done), and how they, their communities, Germany, and the world might best benefit from their renaturalization in Germany.
