Mahoning Valley Historical Society will debut “Cheers to Your Health!” in its monthly Bites and Bits of History video presentation at noon on Thursday, December 17. Cassie Nespor, curator at YSU Melnick Medical Museum, will explore the medical ties to contemporary cocktails during this season of holiday celebrations.
Ms. Nespor started working at the Youngstown State University Archives in January 2009. She has a Masters degree in Library Science with a focus in Archival Studies from the University of Pittsburgh and a Bachelors degree in History from Dickinson College. Nespor created an exhibit, displayed in YSU’s Cushwa Hall, in 2014 on the medicinal history of alcohol. Since then, she has written related blogs on the Melnick Medical Museum’s website.
With continued precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this monthly public outreach program will be presented online. The public will be able to view this video presentation on the MVHS YouTube channel.
