CVM Alumnus Will Receive
Veterinary Service Award

William Williams, DVMWilliam Williams, DVM ‘95

William Williams, DVM ‘95, has been tabbed to receive the 2017 William P. Switzer Award for service to the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association.

Williams is co-owner of Hubbell Animal Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa, and Altoona Veterinary Hospital in Altoona, Iowa. Veterinary medicine is a family business for Williams, who is married to Amanda Fales-Williams, DVM ‘95, PhD, an associate professor of veterinary pathology at Iowa State. Fales-Williams had the rare privilege of hooding her father, William H. Fales, MS, PhD, when he became the MU CVM’s first honorary veterinarian during May 2017 commencement.

The Switzer Award was created in 1998 to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to society and to the ISU CVM. In addition to professional achievements, these individuals will also have had an association with the college that has made a positive impact for teaching, research or service. Nominees may be veterinarians or non-veterinarians, alumni or non-alumni.

Bestowed annually in October, the Switzer Award was named to honor an ISU researcher who made major contributions to the understanding of swine respiratory diseases. William P. Switzer, DVM, PhD, served as a faculty member and administrator in the College of Veterinary Medicine from 1948 until he retired as associate dean emeritus and distinguished professor emeritus in 1990.
