WASHINGTON POISON CENTER HAS A NEW LOOK!
Why did we change?
We hope to fully represent all the exciting and impactful things happening across WAPC—our outreach into more communities and continuous program expansion in clinical education, public health, and emergency preparedness and response for all ages to name a few.
Many things aren’t changing
Our name and 1-800 number remain the same as does our passion for the work we do. We are the reliable, compassionate experts who provide 24/7 help. We are still a local, nonprofit, anchor institution for education around poisonings and medication overdoses, and yes, Mr. Yuk will still be part of our educational programming.
What’s to come?
Our new website! And public-education materials featuring our new brand will be phased in over the next six months, so please stay tuned!
