Last summer, we wrote about Edmonds resident and award-wining Swedish Edmonds nurse Stefan Torres, who runs Nurse Weekly, an educational video channel available for worldwide viewing on Facebook and YouTube.
In particular, we highlighted the video he produced August 2018 — in honor of National Breastfeeding Awareness Month — on the benefits of breastfeeding.
Turns out, since our last report there has been even more recognition for “Nurse Stefan.”
First, the UW Bothell Alumni Council has named him the first recipient of the new UW Bothell Alumni of the Year award, chosen out of 21,000 alumni from over 30 years. Second, UW’s School of Nursing named him among 100 Distinguished Nurses of Influence over the last 100 years — one of only two male nurses recognized.
In addition, Torres won first prize in a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nurses Week contest for his achievements. As a result, he was profiled in this video:
“I’ve been extremely honored by all of this,” he said.
In honor of Nurses Week, which ends this weekend, Torres also shared a link to his newest video: www.facebook.com/NurseStefan/videos/2322429388026245
