We are happy to present the Utah Poison Control Center 2020 Annual Report. This report highlights UPCC's role in Utah's response to the COVID-19 pandemic including managing the Utah Coronavirus Information Line in collaboration with the Utah Department of Health. Also highlighted is how the UPCC has maintained its mission "to prevent and minimize adverse health effects from a poison exposure through education, service, and research" during the pandemic. The UPCC found innovative ways to provide outreach education as well as continued to provide experiential toxicology education to future healthcare professionals throughout the pandemic.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the poison center! We hope you enjoy our 2020 report.
