Anthony Fauci to speak at University of Chicago on March 4

International Edu News

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, will join the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy on March 4 for a conversation hosted by its dean, Katherine Baicker, who will award Fauci the 2020 Harris Dean’s Award. As the United States has grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauci has taken a leading role in informing the American public about the science behind the virus and the precautions needed to mitigate the harms of the disease. President-elect Biden has announced that Fauci will take on an expanded role as Chief Medical Adviser on COVID-19 to the President in his administration.

The Dean’s Award is given annually to an exceptional leader who has championed analytically rigorous, evidence-based approaches to policy, and who is an example for the next generation of policy leaders and scholars. The late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the 2019 recipient of the Dean’s Award.  The virtual event will take place at 5:30 p.m. CST March 4; registration information will be available on the Harris website in January 2021.
