Daniel Patrick Morberg
Daniel grew up in southern California and stuck around for college to study philosophy at UCLA. After graduating he served as a Peace Corps volunteer in rural Turkmenistan before moving to China to live and work for another two years. He returned to the US and dedicated himself to pursuing medicine. During a post baccalaureate program he did research in global health at UCSF, taught meditation to inmates in the SF county jail system, and finally worked at a health technology start-up before enrolling in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint

He is extremely excited to work with the Center for Global Public Health and continue investigating how best to provide access and prevent disease in this population.
