I am announcing today that I will be stepping down …Dr. Anthony Fauci on resigning his positions by the end of the year.
Why It Matters: Dr. Fauci is one of the nation’s top health officials, serving for nearly 40 years as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. A replacement remains TBD.
- Dr. Fauci’s official position(s): Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, and Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden
- We do not have the exact date of his pending resignation – He only referenced “December” as the time frame.
- Weeks ago, Dr. Fauci telegraphed his potential resignation by the end of Pres. Biden’s first term.
