AIHP Welcomes Social Media Coordinator Naomi Rendina

The American Institute of the History of Pharmacy is excited to announce that Naomi Rendina, a doctoral candidate in the department of history at Case Western Reserve University, has joined the AIHP team as our new Social Media Coordinator.

AIHP Social Media Coordinator Naomi Rendina

Rendina will help AIHP manage, update, and improve its content on social media platforms and on the web. She will help promote AIHP programming, projects, and publications, including Pharmacy in History. She has special responsibility for helping to manage AIHP’s twitter account (@HistPharm) where she will share regular news updates about Institute events, as well as provide information about the history of pharmacy, drugs, and medicines more generally.

Rendina recently attended the 44th International Congress for the History of Pharmacy in Washington, DC, where she helped AIHP staff document and promote the research presentations at the conference. Please read her engaging (and illustrated) Conference Report, which recounts her experiences at the Congress.

Rendina’s dissertation, titled “Pushing Too Hard: Pharmaceuticals, the FDA, and the Selling of Birth Practices, 1930-1970,” seeks to understand the pharmaceutical and corporate motivations behind the research and development of childbirth-inducing drugs. She has published her research in Ohio History, Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics, The History Teacher, and other outlets. She has received numerous grants—including a 2019 AIHP PhD Thesis Support Grant—to fund her research.

You can visit her personal website at naomirendina.com or follow her on Twitter (@NaomiRendina).
