Paleopathology is the study of ancient diseases in humans and animals. The Paleopathology Association was formed in 1973 by U.S. and Canadian scientists. Today, the PPA is a global community composed of researchers and students with backgrounds in physical anthropology, archaeology, medicine, biology, and zoology. Membership is open to all who are interested and dedicated to sharing information, ideas and resources that help us understand health and disease in the past.
