About the Author

After his mother’s Valley Fever infection in 2001, David Filip dedicated his life to in-depth research of medical journals and every important conference on this subject. He has also been in telephone and e-mail contact with leading researchers and thousands of Valley Fever Survivors. At times he was even contacted by patients with whom he was already familiar because he read about their unique cases in medical journals' anonymous case reports.

For his research and technical expertise, he has been interviewed on television and radio broadcasts. Producers and reporters from Voice of America, BBC, the New York Times, PBS, Animal Planet, and other media outlets across the country rely on his knowledge and connections for their articles and programs on Valley Fever.

As a co-founder of Valley Fever Survivor he has organized petitions, fundraising programs, awareness campaigns, and the formation of support groups. His extensive research makes the only comprehensive and up-to-date web site available on this disease for the general public.

He also produces and creates educational videos on Valley Fever. His latest video series “Valley Fever Voices” details the struggles, losses, and triumphs of those afflicted with Valley Fever. By bringing the medical, military, historical, and personal facets of Valley Fever together, David Filip’s knowledge and expertise “connects the dots” to bring the complete scope of the Valley Fever epidemic to light.

David has a BA degree in communications from the University of Washington and is the author of several non-fiction books. He has been a technical writer, a black belt in Arnis, a musician with music and sound effects appearing in video games and multimedia displays, and a member of the New York Academy of Sciences.
