Dr. Anthony S. Fauci ’62, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told NPR’s Nina Totenberg in a recent interview for the “What It Takes” podcast that having a Jesuit education was “the defining academic experience” of his life. It taught him to strive for excellence, while also making sure to leave a positive impact on the world.

Fauci, who has led the fight against every infectious disease crisis in America since 1984, was one of the first scientists to recognize that we were on the verge of a new epidemic, HIV/AIDS, and then devoted his career to finding a cure for it. He graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in classics with a premedical concentration, and has credited the liberal arts education he received at Holy Cross with propelling him to a successful career in medicine.
