Fauci: The National Geographic Documentary

Posted on

Free screening and discussion of National Geographic documentary film: FAUCI presented by the All of Us Research Program and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. Watch the trailer here and all the information below is also available in pdf here.

With his signature blend of scientific acumen, candor, and integrity, Dr. Anthony Fauci became America’s most unlikely cultural icon during the COVID-19 pandemic. A world-renowned infectious disease specialist and the longest-serving public health leader in Washington, D.C., he has overseen the U.S. response to 40 years’ worth of outbreaks, including HIV/AIDS, SARS, and Ebola. Crafted around unprecedented access to Dr. Fauci, National Geographic Documentary Films’ FAUCI is a revealing portrait of one of our most dedicated public servants.

After the film, hear from longtime AIDS activist and survivor Michael Manganiello in a discussion about the importance of participation in medical research.
