Dr. Anthony Fauci, On Call: A Doctor's Journey in Public Service, in conversation with Senator Barbara Boxer





Angelico Concert Hall

We look forward to welcoming Dr. Anthony Fauci, renowned doctor and public servant, to Dominican University of California for an evening celebrating the release of his memoir, On Call: A Doctor's Journey in Public Service.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is arguably the most famous and revered doctor in the world today. His role guiding America through the COVID-19 pandemic earned him the trust of millions during one of the most terrifying periods in modern American history.  Dr. Fauci's leadership in researching HIV and bringing AIDS into a sympathetic public view, and navigating the Ebola, SARS, West Nile, and anthrax crises, further defines him as a true American hero.

His new memoir, On Call, reaches back to his boyhood in Brooklyn, New York and narrates through six decades of his life and career dedicated to caring for critically ill patients, navigating the whirlpools of Washington politics, and advising seven U.S. presidents.

Dr. Fauci served as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health from 1984 to 2022. He also served as the Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden. He is currently a Distinguished University Professor at Georgetown University with a joint appointment in the School of Medicine and the McCourt School of Public Policy. He has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the National Medal of Science, and the Mary Woodard Lasker Award for Public Service.

Facilitating the discussion with Dr. Fauci is Barbara Boxer, who served as California’s U.S. Senator from 1993 to 2017, and in the U.S. House of Representatives for five terms prior to that. Known as a fierce fighter for California and its people, Senator Boxer's many legislative accomplishments include establishing the first federal funding for after school programs, permanently protecting one million acres of beautiful California wilderness, and ensuring that drinking water is safe for the most vulnerable.  Boxer was the first woman elected to the 2nd Supervisorial District in Marin County, and the first woman elected President of the Marin Board of Supervisors. In 1992, she made history with Dianne Feinstein as the first two women ever elected to the U.S. Senate from any state in the union.
