BUSM anniversary cake

BU School of Medicine faculty, staff, and students gathered together for a special reception on January 13 to kick off BUSM's yearlong 150th anniversary celebrations. The sesquicentennial marks the founding of BUSM in 1873 and of its predecessor school, the New England Female Medical College -- the first institution in the United States to provide women with a medical education -- in 1848. Preparing to cut the birthday cake are (from left) Provost of the Medical Campus and BUSM Dean Aram Chobanian, Deena Atieh (MED'00), vice chair of the student committee on BUSM affairs, and Don Grande (MED'73), president of the BUSM Alumni Association.
