Guiliana also had the unique opportunity to see his son, Stephen Guiliana, graduate and follow in his father’s footsteps of being a podiatrist.

Thomas V. Melillo, D.P.M., chief executive officer of Kent State’s College of Podiatric Medicine, stated, “This was truly another major milestone in the history of the College of Podiatric Medicine. This class represents a new era of podiatric medical education under Kent State. I am very proud of our students, faculty and staff who have been instrumental in helping the college transition from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine to Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine.”
