Susan Hershberg Adelman MD
 I began painting at five years of age.  Interested in my cousin’s jewelry business I majored in geology at the University of Michigan, and also worked on the Michigan Daily.  When I married a law student, Martin Adelman, I switched to medicine.  

While a teaching fellow in geology at Wayne State University, I took courses in the art department.   I attended the Wayne State University School of Medicine, with internship and surgery residency at Henry Ford Hospital and pediatric surgery fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

I have been interested in sculpture, architecture and fabric designs, and have traveled in India, the Orient and the Middle East. Our travels to India introduced us to the famous lawyer, Ram Jethmalani, and now I can proudly introduce his biography, which I have just written:  "The Rebel: A biography of Ram Jethmalani," to be released this fall by Penguin Random House in India.

The first woman president of the Michigan State Medical Society and the Wayne County Medical Society, I was on the AMA Board of Trustees.   I edited the Detroit Medical News and wrote a monthly column in AMNews for many years.  I served on the board of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and was president of a physician labor organization.  I have published over 40 articles and over 300 columns and editorials. Now finally I can present a book.
