November 3, 2016—Standard Process Inc., a leader in whole food nutrient solutions, presented two students Maxwell Muehleip and Ben Stebbins, from the University of Western States (UWS) $2,500 each to support their education in chiropractic care. Based in Palmyra, Wisconsin, Standard Process started their scholarship program to aid students who are studying to become a health care professional with hope that they will grasp the study of nutritional education as well.
“I would like to thank Standard Process from the bottom of my heart,” said Muehleip. “My grandmother – who loved Standard Process products – was a staunch supporter of my dream to become a doctor of chiropractic. She passed away my first term of the doctoral program but I know she is very proud.”
Muehleip, a UWS student studying chiropractic care, is a quarter 12 student expecting to graduate in 2016.
“Thank you to Standard Process for this scholarship opportunity,” said Stebbins. “I appreciate the chance to learn and write about a topic I am passionate about, while hopefully educating others. Nutrition is a vital component of health and wellness and is something that needs to be addressed in today’s society. I believe debunking common nutritional myths is a great way to educate the public on this matter.”
Also studying chiropractic care at UWS, Stebbins expects to graduate 2017, and is in his eighth quarter of school.
Both students show educational excellence. They submitted essays regarding their thoughts on nutrition myths which helped with the decision to pick them as the Standard Process scholarship recipients.
Standard Process has positive ties with educational institutions that are developing the next generation of health care professionals around the country. Their goal is to promote and educate future health care professionals to include nutritional education into their practice while pursuing their professional health care degrees.
