Rear Admiral Cristina Beato: Acting Assistant Secretary for Health, Department of Health and Human Services
In June 2004, Cristina Beato admitted to her hometown newspaper that she hadn't paid much attention to the details of her resum. That's too bad, because those silly little details seem to have stalled her confirmation for assistant secretary for health for over two years now. Beato said she earned a master's of public health in occupational medicine from the University of Wisconsin (but the university doesn't even offer that degree). She claimed to be "one of the principal leaders who revolutionized medical education in American universities by implementing the Problem Based learning curriculum" (but the curriculum was developed while Beato was still a medical student). She listed "medical attach" to the American Embassy in Turkey as a job she held in 1986 (but that position didn't exist until 1995). She also boasted that she had "established" the University of New Mexico's occupational health clinic (but the clinic existed before she was hired, and there was even another medical director before her)

Dr. Cristina Beato, a former UNM School of Medicine administrator, has been on unpaid leave since 2001, when she started a stint at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
She told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she's seeking a job at UNM so that she can care for her 91-year-old father and because she has always had a desire to return to New Mexico. Beato currently serves as the chief medical officer for the firm, Ernst & Young. Beato said Tuesday that she submitted a resume for the post that she should have updated to reflect formal titles, but she performed all the work listed. She was criticized in particular for a hospital case in 1999 in which a pregnant 16-year-old had seizures and entered a vegetative state, she said. The girl was kept alive for several months to allow the baby to be born. Afterward, the teenager required convalescent care. Beato said she made arrangements for the girl to be transported back to Mexico, at the request of her family. But the plane was turned back at the U.S.-Mexico border, and the girl later died at a hospice center in Albuquerque. Beato said the hospital did not provide convalescent care and characterized the case as unfortunate and complex. Still, some who have worked with the hospital do not want to see Beato return. Michelle Mendez, who was on the hospital's Board of Trustees from 2006 to 2011, said she feels that Beato would undermine policies at UNM to ensure care for the uninsured and improve care for those living in the country without legal permission to the detriment of New Mexico's population. Beato said she doesn't discriminate against anyone as a health care professional but also believes that people shouldn't rely solely on government handouts. "I take care of people, I don't ask if you're documented or undocumented," she said.
