Rear Admiral Dr. Cristina V. Beato, FAAFP Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Dr. Cristina V. Beato is focused on leading the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) efforts to reduce health disparities, combat HIV/AIDS, encourage prevention strategies for reducing chronic diseases, and advance women's health. She is a spokesperson for HHS and has been actively involved in the Department's efforts to encourage immunizations, increase preparedness for public health emergencies, promote research integrity and ethics, and establish a women's hospital in Afghanistan.
Board certified in family medicine, Dr. Beato has dedicated her professional life to improving the health and well being of individuals, families, and communities. She emigrated from Cuba in her childhood, and went on to receive her undergraduate and medical school education at the University of New Mexico (UNM). During her medical residency, Dr. Beato instituted the first formal medical community outreach program for abused, neglected, and abandoned children at the All Faiths Receiving Home in Albuquerque where she later served as medical director. Prior to joining the Department, Dr. Beato served her community in various capacities, including as the UNM School of Medicine associate dean for clinical affairs and chief medical officer of the UNM Hospital System, the first woman to serve in that position.

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 resumé. 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 attaché" 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)
Claim That Carmona Had People Pick ... [cached]
Claim That Carmona Had People Pick Up Dry Cleaning On Taxpayer-Funded Time Comes From Testimony Of Cristina Beato. From testimony Cristina Beato gave before the House Oversight Committee as part of the committee's investigation into the politicization of the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General:
[BEATO:] But there's more than the travel.
[BEATO:] I got word that the driver was going around picking up his dry cleaning, okay? I about fell out of my chair.
Beato Is Featured In An Ad Supporting Carmona's Opponent.
Cristina Beato, who supervised Carmona in her role as acting assistant secretary for health and frequently battled with him, told congressional investigators about the alleged incidents while testifying in 2007.
From the Phoenix New Times: "The piece features Cristina Beato, a Cuban immigrant who rose to the ranks of Acting Assistant Secretary of Health under President George W. Bush from 2003 to 2005 - but wasn't confirmed to that post by the U.S. Senate amid questions that she wasn't truthful about her professional credentials. [Phoenix New Times, 10/18/12]
Washington Post: Beato's Resume Included A Number Of Discrepancies. From the Washington Post: "Cristina V. Beato was named last July as assistant secretary of health, one of the top policy officials at the Department of Health and Human Services, but has yet to explain several discrepancies regarding her credentials. These include claims that she served as medical attache at the U.S. Embassy in Turkey, received a master's degree in public health from the University of Wisconsin, 'established' an occupational health clinic at the University of New Mexico and published a scientific paper on inert gases. At several institutions listed on Beato's résumé, officials said they could find no evidence of her service, while former colleagues at the University of New Mexico and an affiliated hospital in Albuquerque disputed assertions she made, saying at a minimum she had puffed up her role in several projects. […] In several instances, Beato's résumé is vague. Under professional experience, she lists 'medical consultant' at the Technical-Vocational Institute and Presbyterian Senior Health Spectrum in Albuquerque and a 12-year relationship with the Sheet Metal Workers in Washington. None of the organizations has any record on Beato, nor do officials at the State Department, who said they have never heard term 'medical attache.' Under educational experience, Beato lists: 'successful candidate, occupational medicine, MPH (master's of public health), University of Wisconsin, 1995.' A university spokeswoman said the school does not offer such a degree. […] Yet even Beato's friends said it appears that she gave herself extra credit on her résumé. At the All Faiths Receiving Home in Albuquerque, Executive Director Steve Johnson praised Beato as a dedicated volunteer physician who provided basic care to the abused and neglected. But she was not the medical director, as her résumé states, he added. William Wiese, director of the Institute for Public Health at the University of New Mexico, said it was inaccurate for Beato to say she had 'established' the school's occupational health clinic. 'The clinic existed before she was hired.
