Thank you for visiting the Arkansas Poison and Drug Information Center (APDIC) webpage! Summertime is here and that means the kids are at home and with a mild Winter poison dangers especially the bites and stings of Summer can be a concern. Please program 1-800-222-1222 into your cell phone speed dial and call to speak with a Poison Specialist in case you or your child get a worrisome bite or sting this summer. The Specialists who answer the phone is either a medical doctor, pharmacist or a registered nurse. The APDIC has an active public education outreach program. Click on the Contact For Free Materials hot tab to order free poison prevention materials online. You may also email Charlie Stutts at CHStutts@uams.edu anytime day for any administrative questions or needs you may have.
The APDIC needs people to call the poison hotline for the latest up to date clinical information regarding any poison exposure or drug interaction question rather than going online and getting information that may or may not be relevant or in some cases actually may be harmful to you or a loved one. Thank you for visiting our webpage and please share it with family, friends and co-workers !
