Free poison prevention kits available at Sindecuse

March 11, 2004

KALAMAZOO--The Sindecuse Health Center Pharmacy is supporting national Poison Prevention Week, March 21-27, by offering free informational materials to the Western Michigan University community.

A child in the United States is accidentally poisoned every 30 seconds. Poison Prevention Week helps raise awareness of the dangers of accidental poisoning and encourages people to take preventive measures.

Among those measures is picking up a Sindecuse Pharmacy poison prevention folder, which contains a poison fact sheet, a safety tip sheet, a poison prevention checklist, activity sheets, "Officer Ugg" stickers, and a poison safety refrigerator magnet aimed at both parents and their children.

For more about Poison Prevention Week or to obtain a poison prevention folder, visit the Sindecuse Pharmacy or call one of its pharmacists at 387-3301.
