We're happy to present the Utah Poison Control Center 2019 Annual Report. In the report we highlight our 65th anniversary celebration with a forum held at Hinckley Institute of Politics and our guest speaker and friend Dr. Anthony Temple. He played a major role in the early success of UPCC and other poison centers across the nation. In addition, we feature the experience two Registered Nurses from Ogden Regional Medical Center had with UPCC while caring for a poisoned patient. It brings attention to the strong partnership the poison center has with medical facilities and how it leads to better patient care. Two personal experiences of Utah residents who called UPCC for help with a poison exposure are also featured in the report.
Thank you for your ongoing advocacy and support of the poison center. It is so important to us! We hope you enjoy our 2019 Annual Report.
