Fauci championed mask-wearing early on in the pandemic and was integral in developing the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) — "a program that has saved millions of lives throughout the developing world since its launch in 2003," according to McGill's lecture announcement.
"Dr. Anthony Fauci has faced the COVID-19 pandemic with unfaltering determination, scientific evidence and humanity," wrote Martha Crago, host of the Beatty Lectures.
"I look forward with excitement to welcoming him, virtually, to our campus community."
The lecture is open to the public and free to view.
