Spruce Elementary Students Learn About Poison Prevention

Students in Deborah Dexheimer’s class at North Tonawanda’s Spruce Elementary recently had some guests in class to teach them some valuable safety tips. 

Pharmacy students from the University of Buffalo spent some time during National Poison Prevention Week (March 19-25) to talk to the students about how to prevent unintentional poisoning.  “They reviewed what poisons are, when medicine should be taken and who they should get their medicine from,” says Ms. Dexheimer. 

The students were asked to identify poison from different photos that were shown to them and received certificates and poison control magnets at the end of this valuable lesson.
