The team at the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center used National Poison Prevention Week as a launching pad for an information campaign warning Arizona consumers about the incidence of poisonings and the likelihood of misusing common medications such as Tylenol.

Working with reporters and using poison center and College of Pharmacy social media channels, the center sent many messages about drug safety and preventing unintended tragedies.

Here's the list of stories and messages that have helped spread the word so far.
