National nonprofit based in Minneapolis elects Randall C. Warren, MD to its board.
February 2, 2015 – Minneapolis, Minn. – One Heartland is pleased to announce its newest board member, Dr. Randall C. Warren. Dr. Warren will bring a wealth of knowledge to the organization, now in its 22nd year, and his background will complement those of current board members and senior staff.
Dr. Randall C. Warren has a Bachelor’s Degree from Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., and an MD from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. Dr. Warren completed his Pediatric Residency at University of Minnesota Hospitals in Minneapolis. Dr. Warren has been a pediatrician for more than 30 years. He served on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors for Mork Clinic and RiverWay Clinics. In addition, Dr. Warren has taught as a Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the University of Minnesota School of Medicine and served as a HealthPartners’s Regional Assistant Medial Director for Primary Care. Currently, Dr. Warren is the Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Department Head at HealthPartners.
For the past several years Dr. Warren has served as a medical volunteer for Camp 5210, where he works directly with youth learning to lead healthier lives. But that’s not the end of Dr. Warren’s involvement at camp – last year he put up bat houses to help reduce the mosquito population! He’s the ultimate team player who is always looking for more ways to help.
“I was drawn initially to Camp 5210 by its mission and program,” Dr. Warren says. “As I became more involved as a volunteer for Camp 5210, I became more aware of and engaged in the overall mission of One Heartland. I am thrilled to now be able to contribute to the larger organization as a member of the Board of Directors.”
“Dr. Warren has already been a huge asset to One Heartland as a medical volunteer with Camp 5210,” says One Heartland Executive Director Patrick Kindler. “We are excited for him to be more deeply involved with shaping our mission. His unique perspective coming from the pediatric health world will be invaluable as we continue to grow and come up with new ways to combat stigma and improve children’s lives.”
