Tim Warren, D.C., Davenport ’86, may not climb every mountain, but he’s managed to get to the top of four of the “Seven Summits”—the highest mountain found on each continent.

“I started technical climbing in the early 1990s and worked up to a six-day climb of Mt. Ranier in Washington State in 1998,” said the 1986 Davenport Campus graduate who practices in Warwick, R.I. “On the summit of that great technical peak, I set a goal to climb a big mountain each year.”

A year later, Dr. Warren climbed his first highest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. After two attempts, he then successfully reached the summit of Mt. McKinley in Denali, Alaska, in 2004. In preparation for Mt. Everest, he then went to the top of Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina, the highest in South America.

When tackling Mt. Everest in Nepal in 2007, he had to turn back after two-and-a-half months due to a lung infection. But he was back at it a year later when he climbed the famous mountain again on March 23, reaching the top on May 24.

“I lost 20 pounds of muscle and was a walking skeleton for a month afterwards, but one with a big smile on his face and thrilled to be back in the office adjusting,” he said. When not in the office or climbing, Dr. Warren makes public and corporate presentations using climbing mountains as a metaphor for successful healthy living.
