Join Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as he talks to Alan Alda about the pandemic, the latest news on the vaccine, and the untold story of a public health program that helped launch the career of America’s favorite doctor.
In the new Audible Original Soldiers of Science, Alda shares how Anthony Fauci began his career as part of an all-star team of doctors who completed their Vietnam War service—not in Saigon, but in the labs and hospital of the NIH. This tour of duty would have a monumental impact on millions of lives. Some of the greatest medical discoveries of the last 50 years were made by the Soldiers of Science, including breakthroughs in heart disease, cancer and Fauci’s own critical role during the world HIV/AIDS crisis. At a time when government and science must work hand in hand to beat COVID-19, hear how Dr. Fauci’s early days as a physician scientist could serve as a model to make us well again.Buy tickets/get more info now
