Dear colleague:
As you know, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been under attack by the White House, despite his critical role in coordinating research about COVID-19 and conveying critical information to the public in a way that foregrounds science. If you are a current or former public health official, a researcher, or a public health professional, please join me in signing this letter to President Trump defending Dr. Fauci and strong scientific standards more generally.
Please circulate as widely as possible.
We are hoping to complete sign-on by early next week.
