One Thing

Date: July 2, 2015

What’s your favorite way to stay active?

Theodore DeWeese

“I like to go climbing whenever I can, usually on vacations to Colorado. Last year I trekked to Mount Everest’s base camp and scaled several peaks in the Himalayas—a longtime goal. I’m also a runner. Getting fresh air gives me a time to focus my mind. It also keeps my blood pressure and weight in a better range.”

Theodore DeWeese, M.D., Radiation Oncologist


Marianne Fingerhood

“Four days a week, I walk on a treadmill. It’s good for my health, but I really do it to recharge my mental battery. When I’m walking, I’ll usually watch some mindless television; it’s fun and relaxing. I encourage my nurse practitioner students to have a similar balance between studying and taking care of themselves.”

Marianne Fingerhood, M.S., CRNP, Nurse Practitioner


Andrew Feinberg

“About four years ago I started doing half-marathons with my patients. It gives me hope when I run with my patients. It makes me think that together, we’ll find a cure for cancer. I also enjoy the quietness of a run—it makes me feel like I’m exploring the world. There’s something very romantic about running.”

Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, M.D., Neurosurgeon
