Hunter & Scout's Poison Patrol
Did you know that children under the age of 6 are the most frequent victims of poisoning? Approximately 50% of the calls to poison centers involve children of this age and nearly 90% of the exposure occurs at a home. The good news is that most poisonings can be prevented, but we need your help!
The Poison Control Center at The University of Kansas Health System offers the educational Hunter & Scout's Poison Patrol Program. The program makes it easy and fun for teachers and parents/caregivers to teach poison prevention to children. The program includes videos and classroom activities as well as educational materials for parents/caregivers. We do this to help parents and other caregivers be involved, which is critical to poison prevention.
Thank you for joining and helping protect children and families from the threat of unintentional poisonings. Together, we can make a difference.
