Dr. Anthony Fauci's new book is "On Call: A Doctor's Journey In Public Service" (Christopher Michel)

Anthony Fauci was the face of the U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic, guiding the public through the upheavals of school closures and stay-at-home orders and unprecedented loss of life. He implored people to get vaccinated and weathered near constant partisan attacks. The COVID-19 pandemic was one of a number of global public health crises – including AIDS, bird flu, Ebola and Zika – that Fauci handled during his nearly six-decade career. We’ll talk to Fauci about what we’ve learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, how we should prepare for the next infectious disease crisis and what he values most about his life in public service. His new autobiography is “On Call.”


Dr. Anthony Fauci, former director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH; author, "On Call: A Doctor's Journey In Public Service"
