Bill Brewer is a member of the Faculty of the College of Health Sciences and Technology at RIT where he serves as the Director of Exercise Science within the Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition. His areas of instruction include Anatomy & Physiology as well as numerous courses in Exercise Science. 

Bill is a family man, happily married and the proud father of a son and two daughters.  He lives in the South Wedge of Rochester NY. and loves to find outdoor adventure in the Adirondacks and in the Frontenac region of Ontario, Canada.

In July 2013 as a result of his first ever colonoscopy, he was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer.  He underwent a surgical hemicolectomy to remove one third of his colon including the Stage III tumor.

During his recovery he seized the opportunity to do something he had always wanted to do and wrote a novel.  Tears of the Assassin was published under the pen name William Schiele.

Early detection saved his life.  Surviving cancer made him realize, life is too short not to strive to achieve your dreams.  

Get your colonoscopy, live your dream.
