Meet Your Poison Center Experts

The AAPCC is proud to showcase the dedicated professionals at America's poison centers.

When you call the Poison Help line, a poison expert is on the other end of line to help you. While many of these experts are physicians, nurses and pharmacists, they're also parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers and friends just like you. 

Each week, the AAPCC will put a face to the friendly voice you trust. This week's AAPCC Poison Center Expert Spotlight shines on Warren Patitz, Indiana Poison Center.
