- Board Member
Lisa Frank has been appointed Chief Operating and Administrative Officer for the City of Pittsburgh.
Prior to her appointment, Lisa served as EVP for Strategic Campaigns at SEIU Healthcare, where she engaged frontline caregivers and healthcare advocates in initiatives to ensure that our massive investment in healthcare results in our good health. She did this by helping people affected by healthcare policy to have a seat at the table where decisions are made.
Over two decades of organizing, Lisa has helped tens of thousands of homecare workers and hospital workers to unite and raise their voices, to improve their jobs and the care they deliver. She has sued providers who steal workers’ wages, built campaigns to connect Pennsylvania’s uninsured to the fight for Medicaid expansion, led the Fight for $15.00 to put poverty on the nation’s health agenda, and played a leading role in the passage and preservation of the ACA.
Lisa also serves on the boards of Pennsylvania United, the Pennsylvania Association of Retired Americans, and is a member of the Action Council of Planned Parenthood.
