The Partnership for Public Service has announced this year’s Sammies finalists. Among them is one federal employee who has been in the public spotlight recently: Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Fauci has served for decades as the government’s premier expert on infectious diseases and provided critical health care information to the public and government officials on HIV/AIDS, Ebola, Zika, SARS, MERS, swine flu and most recently the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Achievements among other finalists from this year include making recommendations to improve helicopter flight safety, conceiving and developing telehealth options, and mobile apps and digital services for veterans to receive health care.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has vividly demonstrated how important an effective government is to our safety and welfare,” said Max Stier, the Partnership’s president and CEO.

“The 2020 Service to America Medal finalists represent the many extraordinary career public servants who are making our lives better. It is vital that we take the time to recognize and celebrate these exceptional individuals.”

The full list of this year’s finalists is available at servicetoamericamedals.org.
