Time to Gear Up For Poison Prevention Month 2019 (PPM)!

PPM is right around the corner New Mexico! Our communities continue to be plagued by poison - related public health issues, such as the opioid epidemic and synthetic drug overdoses, that debilitate and kill our family members, friends and neighbors. All are most welcome and highly encouraged to join us in our mission to prevent poison - related morbidity and mortality; no effort can be too big or too small especially when comes to saving lives. Start planning, and order your free materials now!

Currently, the NMPDIC is working with the American Association of Poison Control Centers and the National Poison Prevention Council to give the youth of New Mexico a voice in preventing poisonings. "Own It!" is a national competition that awards the winners recognition, a free trip to Washington D.C. and $500! Learn more about this competition, and stay tuned for further event updates and themes.
