Student members of the PPA can stay up-to-date with the Student Group happenings by joining us on Facebook.com (FB). We currently have over 100 members from all over the world! This site is only open to student members of the PPA. Here, student members can discuss common interests in paleopathology, share ideas, network, and post information on skeletal collections and other resources.

1. Go to www.facebook.com and search for our group under: Paleopathology Association Student Group.
2. You will need to join FB before you can request to join the Student Group page.
3. Once you make a request to join the Student Group, FB will notify us and we will confirm your PPA membership. For new PPA members, please be patient while we confirm your PPA membership.

We would like to try a new fundraiser this year as a calendar featuring Paleopathologists and their Pets. The calendar would have pictures submitted by senior members with their favorite furry (and not so furry) friends. The calendar will have deadlines for abstract submissions and projected conference dates for the PPA, AAPA, AAA, SAA, etc. These calendars will be sold at our upcoming meeting. In order to make this a successful project, we will need photo submissions from you. Please send photos of you and your pets to email@example.com.
As always, we are seeking donations for our Silent Auction. Please e-mail us if you have anything that you would like to donate.
The SAC has opened a shop via Cafepress.com. Here you can buy high quality clothes, coffee mugs, bags, wall clocks, and much more with the PPA logo. Please use the link below to find our shop, don’t just go to cafépress and search for the name (our group gets a better commission when purchased via the link). Please pass this info on to others that might be interested in shopping at our site. Next year’s student meeting/networking luncheon will depend on these funds!
