Berenson, MD, Boyd Professor of Cardiology at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, passed away Thursday, November 22, 2018 while visiting family in Houston. “His pioneering Bogalusa Heart Study provided new information about how risk factors in children evolve as they age and the pathogenesis of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
The program operated out of LSU Health New Orleans. Berenson rejoined the LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine faculty in 2015.
It was the first and only National Research and Demonstration Center for Arteriosclerosis; the funding for the first year of the program was $2,691,382 and the funding for the second year was $2,892,631; these are the largest one-year grants he received over the course of his research career, although the total research funding he was awarded was $55 million. Berenson was the first to propose and later implement a modern-day coronary care unit at Charity Hospital,” adds Dr. His goal was to continue research and to facilitate the development a Center for Healthy Aging and Longevity at LSU Health.
By summer 1941, Operation Barbarosa brought total war and genocide to the Jews of eastern Poland and the Soviet Union.
Those two years represented a radicalization of Nazi policy toward the Jews that was driven by ideology, conditions of war, and opportunity, culminating in the formulation of the Final Solution.
In 1954, he joined the faculty of LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, where he remained for the next 38 years.
He rose through the academic ranks becoming a professor and Chief of Cardiology. Berenson became Director of the first National Heart Lung Blood Institute National Research and Demonstration Center - Arteriosclerosis.
What he learned from Bogalusa school children influenced the well-being of people the world over.
We are proud that such a compassionate physician and accomplished research scientist was a member of the faculty of LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine at both the beginning and the end of his career. Berenson's contributions and international stature were recognized when he was named a Boyd Professor - the highest professorial rank awarded by LSU.” One of the principal findings of the Bogalusa Heart Study changed our understanding about the onset of adult heart disease.
