A man who once taught at the University of Pittsburgh will be nominated to a key post in the Obama administration, the White House announced on Tuesday.

President Obama intends to nominate Dr. Richard G. Frank, who was on the faculty at Pitt from 1980-84, as assistant secretary for planning and evaluation in the Department of Health and Human Services, the White House said.

Frank is the Margaret T. Morris Professor of Health Economics in the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School, a position he has held since 1999.

While on leave from Harvard from August 2009 to March 2011, Frank served as the deputy assistant secretary for planning and evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services, where he directed the Office on Disability, Aging and Long-Term Policy.
