Dr. Fauci Talks About His New Book: 7 Presidents & the Challenges of COVID, AIDS

FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2024

Five times during the COVID pandemic Dr. Anthony Fauci took time out of his incredibly busy schedule to share with “Conservations on Health Care” his latest insights. Now, he returns to reflect not only on COVID but also on the entire scope of his career, including his efforts to bring attention and resources to the AIDS fight in the 1980s. Dr. Fauci explains he had to speak truth to power during the pandemic in order “to preserve…professional integrity and to fulfill my responsibility to the American public.” He continues to focus on sharing “just the facts.” In terms of the current COVID situation, he says the virus persists and “has an uncanny capability of continuing to evolve…there’s a new variant now…that evades some of the protection from vaccines and prior infection.” Dr. Fauci’s autobiography, “On Call: A Doctor's Journey in Public Service,” takes readers through his life from growing up in Brooklyn to advising seven presidents through some of the world’s most harrowing health crises. Join hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter for this important conversation with the most renowned and acclaimed physician and public health leader of our era, Dr. Fauci.
