Your poison center is cost effective, safely
treating about 72% of callers at home and saving the region's
residents over $18 million in medical expenses each year.
About half of the poisoning emergencies involve
small children. The Center also helps teens, adults, and seniors
with drug interactions, suicide attempts, medication errors,
substance abuse, chemical spills, and occupational exposures.
Pet owners call too, when the dog, cat or bird has been poisoned.
Highly trained, certified toxicology specialists provide expert
treatment and guidance immediately.
Make a donation NOW so this service will be
available for everyone who needs poison help.
