Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Parents of Rhode Island school children with concerns about this fall’s return to the classroom during the coronavirus pandemic will get the chance to have their questions answered by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Fauci, who’s earned a national profile as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, is scheduled to join Gov. Gina Raimondo next Thursday during a Facebook Live forum on the state’s school reopening plan.

Parents with questions for Fauci can submit them to the governor’s communications office, and Raimondo will ask them.
