In June, Anthony Fauci, the former chief medical adviser to the White House, will reportedly publish a new memoir in which he reflects on his extensive career as an expert in infectious diseases during multiple administrations.
Thursday, the book publisher Viking made an official declaration regarding the publication of “On Call: A Doctor’s Journey in Public Service.” The publication date for the 496-page book is June 18.
“I hope that this memoir will serve as a personalized document for the reader to understand better the daunting challenges that we have faced in public health over the past forty years,” Fauci wrote in the announcement for the upcoming title.
Seven presidents were represented by Fauci, commencing with the Reagan administration.
For nearly four decades, he oversaw the operations of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is an agency of the National Institutes of Health.
His management of the coronavirus pandemic during the Trump administration drew severe criticism from conservatives.
In addition, he has been relentlessly criticized by Republicans and anti-vaxxers on a variety of issues, and number of high profile books have been written in recent years which attack his approach to handling the coronavirus pandemic.
Nearly forty years ago, Fauci, now 83, was appointed director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health.
Until his retirement in 2022, he served as President Biden’s principal medical advisor.
Fauci served under seven presidents, beginning with Ronald Reagan, but his tenure during the administration of Donald Trump stands out due to frequent disagreements between him and the White House regarding the appropriate course of action regarding the coronavirus.
