Dr. Birx Appreciation Post

Dr. Deborah Birx is the response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force. We’ve all become familiar with her presence (and her patterned silk scarves!) during White House press briefings over the past few weeks. We want to use this post as a way to learn more about Dr. Birx and appreciate her incredible service to the US.

Dr. Birx was born and raised in Pennsylvania and earned her medical degree from the Hershey School of Medicine at Penn State. In 1980, she began working at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and National Institutes of Health in the fields of internal medicine and immunology. Dr. Birx served in the US Army and retired from military service after rising to the rank of colonel.

In her illustrious career, she has focused on advancing HIV/AIDS research, and in 1996, she became the Director of the US Military HIV Research Program through Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. Dr. Birx served as the director of the CDC’s Division of Global HIV/AIDS from 2005 to 2014. Then in April 2014, Birx was nominated by President Barack Obama as the US Global AIDS Coordinator. 

Honestly, Dr. Birx is the definition of a #boss. She is the epitome of remaining calm, cool, and collected even during a global crisis. She is an inspiration and a true hero to our country. Check out some video clips and interviews below. She even made a guest appearance on The Morning Toast, the millennial pop culture morning show. Please follow her advice along with the advice of the CDC. Thank you Dr. Birx for your tireless efforts!
