During an interview with MSNBC host Joy Reid on Thursday, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he wasn’t “retiring in the classic sense” and that he would remain “very active” in public health issues.

And hopefully, inspiring the younger generation to take a consideration of going into science or going into public health. And hopefully even going into public service.”

So I hope that I can use that experience to inspire some people to pursue a career in science, medicine, and public health,” he added.

Last month, Fauci gave what he called his “final message” before retirement during a speech at the White House.

At the time, Fauci said that “masking is important” and that “masking, vaccine, boosting, testing — all of that is part of the spectrum of protecting yourself and your family.”
