Dr. Fauci CAREER News – He Just Made a HUGE Announcement!
(ConservativeHub.com) – For nearly four decades, Dr. Anthony Fauci has led the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Now, he’s decided the time has finally come for him to step down and pursue something outside government service. This August, the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden announced he would leave his post at the end of the year.
On Monday, August 22, Fauci stated he would leave his multiple positions in the government. The chief of the Laboratory of Immunoregulation highlighted he’s not retiring but will “pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field.”

The 81-year-old doctor began leading the NIAID while President Ronald Reagan was in office. During his tenure, he oversaw government research and response to diseases like HIV/AIDS, the bird flu, and COVID-19. When serving under President George W. Bush, Fauci received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
This resignation announcement came after months of Fauci dropping hints about a potential resignation and years of public criticism about the government’s coronavirus response. The NIAID director had told Americans he wouldn’t step down until the country was past the worst of the coronavirus pandemic. So, could the announcement be a sign of what’s to come?
