Program Description

Event Details

Join us for a series of workshops presented by Bringing Back the Village!

Many individuals, especially seniors, are on medications. If medications are not used correctly, they can lead to poisonings. Yes, poisonings. Not all poisonings involve children and household products. A poisoning can happen to anyone at any time by a variety of items. The West Virginia Poison Center’s Community Outreach Coordinator will discuss medication safety, general poison safety, and information about how the West Virginia Poison Center can help you if a poisoning or medication error occurs. 



Individuals with disabilities who require accommodation to attend a program at any KCPL facility should contact the ADA Coordinator at least 48 hours prior to the event. Phone: 304-343-4646 ext. 1242 or 1268 Email:
