Hello my Brothers and Sisters,
Here it is August 2020 and COVID is still overtaking our lives. Some states across the country are not faring well with social distancing … and some have done a great job. I hope that all our brothers and sisters across this great nation are following the information we receive from our leaders. On a positive note ... here is some information on our wonderful Italian American physician ... Dr. Anthony Fauci: Dr. Fauci has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease since 1984. Anthony Stephen Fauci was born on December 24, 1940, in Brooklyn, New York, the second child of first-generation Italian American parents Eugenia and Stephen. A sports enthusiast, he spent his days playing baseball, basketball and football, when not busy working the cash register or making deliveries for his father's pharmacy. Fauci attended Regis High School in Manhattan, where he served as captain of the basketball team, before turning his focus to premed studies at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. After graduating first in his class from New York City's Cornell Medical College in 1966, he completed his internship and residency at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.” (info taken from Biography.com) And … the rest is history! Just thought you may like a little information about “our” famous physician of the present day. Let’s keep wearing our masks, practicing social distancing and simply being good Italian American citizens of our beautiful “America”! Stay well and stay safe.
