Dr. Anthony Fauci


The WHYY Lifelong Learning Award recognizes an honoree who has demonstrated a passion for lifelong learning for themselves and for all those they can inspire. On February 3, 2021, WHYY presented the 19th Lifelong Learning Award to Dr. Anthony S. Fauci. The award honored Dr. Fauci for his career and contributions to public health, scientific advancement and education.
