Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the US National Institutes of Health and Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden.
Pellegrino Center Director Myles N. Sheehan, SJ, MD will moderate the conversation, which will address a variety of topics including the public role of the physician and the future of ethics in health care.
