The American Association of Poison Control Centers is a national nonprofit organization representing each of the 55 poison control centers in the United States, the more than 1,700 professionals these centers employ, as well as other poison-related organizations. AAPCC’s mission is to actively advance the health care role and public health mission of its members through information, advocacy, education, and research.
AAPCC’s core membership is made up of the U.S. poison control centers who combined answer calls to the Poison Help hotline (1-800-222-1222) in every U.S. state and territory. This includes the physicians, pharmacists, nurses, health educators, and administrators they employ. AAPCC provides opportunities for its members to collaborate with other poison control providers across the world but does not accredit those services.
As overseen by a Board of Directors elected from the membership, AAPCC:
