National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW)

In September 1961, Public Law 87-139; 75 Stat. 681 (H. J. Res. 358) was passed authorizing the President of the United States to issue annually a proclamation designating the third week of March as National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW). During NPPW, the GPC and other organizations around the nation coordinate activities to increase awareness of the dangers of unintentional poisoning.
