Kent State Public Health Professor Appointed to Ohio Board of Sanitarian Registration
F. Charles Hart, Ph.D., CIH, CSP, RS, associate professor of environmental health science at the Kent State University College of Public Health, has been appointed by Gov. John Kasich to the Ohio Board of Sanitarian Registration.
The Ohio Board of Sanitarian Registration has seven members who oversee the licensing, qualifications and examination of registered sanitarians who are responsible for inspecting restaurants, waste water systems and other potential environmental health hazards.
“It’s an honor to be selected to this position,” says Hart. “It is my privilege to serve on the board.”
Hart has many years of experience in environmental health and believes he will be able to bring a unique perspective to the board.
“I think the college and university representative on the board is a really important perspective,” says Hart. “It helps bring the academic concerns to the board and to the registration process.”
Ken Slenkovich, assistant dean of the College of Public Health, says the college is proud Hart has been selected to serve on the board.
“It is a very important state agency that ensures that sanitarians are qualified to conduct inspections and ensure that restaurants, sewage systems and other potential sources of environmental health hazards are in compliance with safety regulations,” says Slenkovich.
Slenkovich also believes Hart will be a great addition to the board.
“Dr. Hart brings years of experience in environmental health to this position,” says Slenkovich. “He has an impressive depth of knowledge regarding what sanitarians need to know and the skills they must possess to qualify as a registered sanitarian. He was a wise choice to serve on the board.”
