Fauci awarded with rare Hutch Award, will throw ceremonial first pitch Aug. 9

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, has been named the recipient of the 2022 honorary Hutch Award. Fauci will accept the award in an on-field ceremony before the Mariners’ game Aug. 9 at T-Mobile Park before he throws out the ceremonial first pitch.

“He has demonstrated fearless leadership and dedication to our country,” the Fred Hutch organization wrote in a prepared statement. “We are honored to present him with this award in recognition of his decades of service to public health, unwavering belief in the power of science, and tireless efforts throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Fauci will join Dr. Lawrence Corey, the president and director emeritus of Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center for a fireside chat before the festivities at T-Mobile Park begin, covering a range of topics from HIV to pandemic preparedness.

“Given the pair’s longstanding friendship, I expect it will be a lively, illuminating conversation,” the statement continued. “The conversation will be livestreamed for the rest of our community of supporters on our YouTube channel and archived for later viewing.”
