Biography - William K. Frankenburg, MD

An internationally recognized pioneer in the field of child development and pediatric preventative care, Dr. William Frankenburg developed the Denver Development Screening Test with Josiah Dodds, PhD, in 1973, to encourage early identification of children with developmental problems by health professionals, as well as professionals in education and social services. Released as the Denver II in 1992, it has been adapted for use throughout the world.

Dr. Frankenburg received his M.D. from Temple University (1957) and completed a residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital and a fellowship in Child Development and Psychosocial Aspects of Pediatrics at Yale University Medical School. In 1964, he joined the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in the department of Pediatrics and Preventive Medicine.  He served as Director of the John F. Kennedy Child  Development Center from 1977 to 1985. In 1987, he earned an M.S. in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1991, he was awarded the distinction of 
professor emeritus from the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Dr. Frankenburg served as a consultant to UNICEF, the World Health Organization and governments and institutions around the world.  He authored numerous publications and was the recipient of the 1974 U.S. Senior Science Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, a Special Achievement Award in 1986 from the American Academy of Pediatrics in 1986, and the 1992 C.
