2013 SPRC Teaching Award Winner

Wes Alles
The annual SPRC teaching award this year goes to Wes Alles. It is extremely rare in any university that a single individual can have such a major impact across an entire campus. Wes is a highly charismatic teacher and his promotion of healthy living is contagious. As a leader of the Health Improvement Program and BeWell it is likely that he has been responsible for teaching more people than anyone else on the Stanford campus and he has made a positive difference in the lives and health of so many of us.
