Support the Connecticut Poison Control Center
Gifts to the Poison Control Center fund provide operational support for the Connecticut Poison Control Center, the only center in the state of CT certified by the American Association of Poison Control Centers. Open 24/7/365, callers talk with live poison experts (who are doctors, nurses, and pharmacists) that provide free, confidential, accurate, and immediate advice for poisonings to thousands of Connecticut residents every year. Saving millions of dollars in healthcare costs on an annual basis is second only to saving lives. Poison Control Center patients range from 0 to 100 years old. Callers need help with poisoning scenarios ranging from taking an extra pill to splashing a cleaner in the eye to food poisoning to overdose. We compassionately deliver stay-at-home treatment advice for non-toxic and low-toxicity poisonings and clinical expertise for life-threatening poisonings.
