Dr. Anthony Fauci was born in 1940 in Brooklyn, New York. His family owned a pharmacy; his father was the pharmacist, his mother and sister operated the cash register, and Anthony delivered prescriptions. He received his M.D. degree from Cornell in 1966 and joined the National Institutes of Health in 1968. In 1984, he became Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a position he still holds today.
I have the highest admiration for Dr. Fauci's ability to have not only been credited with several important scientific discoveries, but also to have been able to provide leadership for our nation in times of crisis, including HIV, Ebola, and the current Coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Fauci has successfully achieved my dream of (1) answering some of humanity's most challenging questions in the lab AND (2) using his knowledge, communication skills, and steadying hand to provide our nation with apolitical leadership in times of crisis.
Thanks to a true "World Changer."
