“I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in, and then I will retire,” Birx told Newsy.
The news comes just days after the Associated Press reported that Birx visited her family on the day after Thanksgiving.
The news wire reported that Birx traveled to one of her vacation properties on Fenwick Island in Delaware.
She was accompanied by three generations of her family from two households. Birx, her husband Paige Reffe, a daughter, son-in-law and two young grandchildren were present.
