Stark State College dietetic technician student named top in Ohio

Christopher Milhoan

(North Canton, OH – May 8, 2020) – Stark State College student Christopher Milhoan was named the Outstanding Dietetic Technician Student in Ohio.

The award is presented annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to recognize emerging leadership achievement and the contribution of dietetic students to the profession.

While maintaining a 3.5 GPA, Milhoan, of Akron, has worked as a cook and dietary aide in the food and nutrition services department at Cleveland Clinic Edwin Shaw Rehabilitation Hospital where he received a number of commendations, including the organization’s Spirit Award and Exemplifying Patient-Centered Care and Core Values Award.

A spring graduate of Stark State, Milhoan has been accepted to The University of Akron’s coordinated program in dietetics. After earning a bachelor’s degree, he will take the registered dietitian exam.

At Stark State, he served as president of the student Food and Nutrition Club, leading the group in community service activities that included developing a workshop on healthy eating on a budget for an underserved community.

“Food is life and I wanted to learn about the impact food has on the body and make a difference in my own health and help others,” he said. “In the future I see myself working with all ages as a clinical dietitian at the hospital I currently work at. It’s rewarding to see how food and rehabilitation with physical therapy can strengthen an individual to regain their activities of daily life and I want to be part of that team.
