Helping Children

lead healthy, happy, long lives.

Partnering with hundreds of schools each year, the Weller Center connects with young people to change behaviors and help them develop life-long healthy habits that will prevent chronic disease, reduce violence and improve the overall health, safety and well-being of children and families in our communities.

Ben Does

Ben Does currently works at Weller as a Health Educator. From the Lehigh Valley, Ben graduated from Nazareth Area High School and went on to receive a B.S. in Biology from Moravian College and an M.Ed. in Secondary Education Biology from Lehigh University. Ben has also taught Biology in two area secondary schools--Easton Area HS and Freedom HS. Ben credits childhood field trips to the Weller Center for igniting his passion for science, health, biology, and education. He loves the challenge of developing timely and informative programs for today's students across the Lehigh Valley, and his greatest reward is the positive feedback that he receives from students and school administrators. The Adolescent Depression Awareness Program, or ADAP, is especially rewarding to Ben as it gives him an opportunity to talk with students about this important, and yet sometimes taboo, subject.
