6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The fossil record is rich with evidence of disease, infections, fractures, and medical anomalies for both humans and animals. Understanding disease and its antiquity provides valuable knowledge for dealing with disease in modern times. Through lectures and labs, research associate Sue Ware and department associate Todd Green, will discuss paleopathology, or the study of disease, injury, and anomaly in the fossil record, and how scientists use this information. Please note that this is a medical class and includes viewing graphic photos and handling specimens that exhibit disease. This is an elective for the Paleontology Certification Program; however, there are no prerequisites for this course.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
