Supershero: Susan Scheer


Dr. Susan Scheer inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in July 2017 for being wicked smart, generous and kind. Susan manages the surveillance data for the San Francisco Department of Public Health. I’ve learned heaps from her about how numbers can tell as story and the value of understand what’s behind those numbers – how were they created, what was counted, what was not counted, as well as being certain you’ve adjusted for influences.  Her brains are only part of my deep admiration. She also generously shares what she knows.  She answers questions with kindness.  I’m often intimidated to dig into data. Susan’s been an invaluable resource in helping so many folks to understand that a number, trend or percentage.  A deep bow of gratitude to Susan Scheer.

About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr


I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.

This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.

Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
