Thursday, Dec 2:  Dr. Shelley Fiscus - Public Health Specialist    

Doctor Shelley Fiscus was the vaccination director for the state of Tennessee before she was fired under pressure from Republican legislators incensed over the department's efforts to get children vaccinated against COVID-19. Fiscus accused Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey of terminating her "to appease a handful of outraged and uninformed legislators." 

Her recent move to Virginia with her husband Brad will provide more opportunities to continue working in public health. Plus, she will be able to continue to be a board member for the American Academy of Pediatrics, where she represents both Tennessee and her new state, Virginia, as well as Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina.
