Mr. Yuck needs your help! The Washington Poison Center offers free, confidential and expert advice on everything poisonous or toxic to all citizens of The Evergreen State. Their hotline is staffed 24/7 by medical professionals who can help prevent unnecessary visits to the emergency room or urgent care.
According to the CDC, every $1 spent on a poison center saves about $13 in overall health care costs. Besides this wonderful service, the WAPC also conducts research in poison treatment and prevention. Being a nonprofit, they have depended upon public funding and the generosity of donors to continue their important work. Stop by, and get educated!
