The Framingham Heart Study celebrated a belated 75th anniversary April 8, drawing study participants from around the country, local and national politicians, and representatives from Boston University. Begun in 1948, supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and run by BU since 1971, it’s the nation’s longest running epidemiological study. US Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), House of Representatives Democratic Whip (from left), Framingham Mayor Charlie Sisitsky, Karen Antman, dean of the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and Medical Campus provost, and Massachusetts Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashford) were among attendees.
