Biography

Dean Echenberg traveled the world for a few years after Vietnam before coming home and setting up a Medical Practice in San Francisco.

He then attended Cal Berkeley for a MPH and PhD in public health and worked as head of Infectious Disease Control in San Francisco during the height of the AIDS epidemic. (Obviously he could have done a better job.)

He has also been involved in international health, heading up Project HOPE Europe, consulting in the Caucasus, the Balkans and more recently helping to deal with the results of the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.

Currently, he lives at home in Tiburon CA and has become the happy bum he was always meant to be.
