Susan Blumenthal, M.D., M.P.A., a retired rear admiral in the Public Health Service and former U.S. assistant surgeon general, has been named a Rock Star of Science by Geoffrey Beene Gives Back and GQ magazine to raise public awareness about the importance of science to society. She joins a list of 17 other medical researchers and eight celebrity musicians in the campaign.

Blumenthal was the country's first deputy assistant secretary for women's health. She is now director of the Health and Medicine Program at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, where she directs and co-chairs the Commission on U.S. Federal Leadership in Health and Medicine, which has been influential in promoting research, global health, and health care reform efforts.
