Framingham to hold heart summit


If there's any town where you'd expect a heart summit to draw a crowd, it's Framingham, home to the groundbreaking heart study that bears its name.

The Framingham Board of Health is sponsoring a Health Smart Summit, ominously titled "Is your Number Up?" from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Framingham Public Library.

Screenings for cholesterol, glucose, body mass index and blood pressure will be provided with results available on site. Organizers also will provide healthy refreshments and other give-aways. Anyone interested can call the board of health for information at 508-532-5470.
