Elizabeth Frank is a fourth year at the University of Chicago. She is majoring in the History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of Science and Medicine, with a specialization in Global Health and a minor in Biology. Elizabeth is a co-founder of MealFlour, a social enterprise to build mealworm farms made from recycled materials that manufacture a protein rich flour in the heart of crowded urban areas. She was inspired to start MealFlour from her values in improving public health through flexible, sustainable, and most importantly, community centered and engaging, solutions.
