Dr. Fauci announces he will step down in December to embark on his ‘Next Chapter’

On Monday, Dr. Fauci, the face of the nation’s pandemic health response and who has advised seven presidents and spent more than half a century at the National Institutes of Health, will retire from government by the end of the year.

His retirement comes as no surprise since he hinted for some time that he was thinking of retiring. In an interview Sunday evening, he said he was “not retiring in the classic sense” but would devote himself to traveling, writing and encouraging young people to enter government service.

“So long as I’m healthy, which I am, and I’m energetic, which I am, and I’m passionate, which I am, I want to do some things outside of the realm of the federal government,” Dr. Fauci said in the interview, adding that he wanted to use his experience and insight into public health and public service to “hopefully inspire the younger generation.”
