Help us promote National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW) 2017! Here is how:
- Take our Poison Prevention Training. Take our online training, it's 100 % free and you can complete it online. Once you finish, you will have access to a useful resource library. Check out the training: poisontraining.ohsu.edu
- Pledge to Save the Poison Control Number on your phone & share it. The most important tool we have to help combat poisoning is the National Poison Help phone number 1-800-222-1222. Help us spread the word by encouraging others to save the number. Text to Save Campaign.
- Donate to your local Poison Center. If you or a loved one has ever called the Poison Help line, please consider investing in your local Poison Center. Please take a few minutes during #NPPW17 to donate to the Oregon Poison Center. You can safely do so here.
