We honor Dr Anthony Fauci with this special cover of @instylemagazine. Dr Fauci and his wife of 35 years, bioethicist Dr Christine Grady (swipe for their portrait) talked to @norahodonnell about his relationship with President Trump (“I don’t see him much anymore”), the multi-front Covid-19 battle and his plea to the American public for pragmatism and safety. They also talk about their marriage, their daughters, their evening walks and how Dr Fauci can get so absorbed in work, he needs to be reminded to eat. Dr Grady says, “When he gets criticized, it feels unfair to me because he is working so hard for the right reasons.” 📸 at home on June 6 by @frankiealduino. (Special thanks to @cristobalita, @karikristen and the InStyle team for the hustle. And Helen in Dr Fauci’s office!). Link in bio.
