National Poison Prevention Week, observed during March, is sponsored by the American Association of Poison Control Centers. National Poison Prevention Week provides a time for advocates to raise awareness among the American public about the risks, frequency, and consequences of unintentional poisoning occurrences, injuries, and fatalities.
National Poison Prevention Week and the American Association of Poison Control Centers make people aware that unintentional poisoning from a wide variety of substances and environmental hazards can happen to anyone, and represents a substantial public health burden in the U.S. This is particularly true as we look at Flint, Michigan, and their problems with lead and toxins in the water supply there.
