The AAAP has been an organized group since 1957. It was launched as a national organization for veterinary practitioners, diagnosticians, researchers, and students interested in poultry health and medicine. With annual meetings involving both national and international members, interested individuals come together to discuss poultry diseases and further advance the field of poultry medicine.  In 2007, celebrating 50 years, AAAP published AAAP- The First 50 Years 1957-2007, prepared by the AAAP History Committee and edited by John Dunn.

AAAP is grateful for the recent contributions from Bruce Calnek and Dick Witter documenting their original presentations from the 2006 and 2007 Lasher History Lectures in Honolulu, HI and Washington, DC respectively. which are being offered online for the first time. (12/26/2011)*
