Warwick, Warren, MD Died Feb 15, 2016, in St. Paul, MN. Dr. Warwick attended Medical School at the University of Minnesota (U of M), completed a rotating internship in Ohio, returned to the U of M for his residency in Pediatrics, and then served two years in the Army. He served on the faculty of the Department of Pediatrics at the U of M for over fifty years. There, he led the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) program from 1962 to 1999. He invented several iterations of a vest that helps patients clear out lung secretions, enabling them to live more independently with better lung function. His comprehensive approach to CF care extended the lives of countless individuals with CF. He was the recipient of many awards, including the Annalisa Marzotto Chair in Cystic Fibrosis, and the University of Minnesota President's Award for outstanding service. He also received the St. Olaf College distinguished Alumni award. His work became widely known after Dr. Atul Gawande described it in a New Yorker article called "The Bell Curve" (12/2004), later republished as a chapter in his book "Better". Throughout most of Dr. Warwick's career he was active in the US Army Reserves where he received the Legion of Merit Award for advances in Army medical care. His wife and children remember him chiefly as a loving and dedicated husband and father. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, and his sister.
