ABOUT/CONTACT US

This website is designed to aid educators by offering quality teaching materials related to pesticides. 

All resources can be used and modified free of charge.  Educational tools have been developed by a team of faculty, staff, and students in the medical fields to meet the curricular needs of a wide variety of medical and nursing programs. These teaching materials are based on actual cases of pesticide poisonings identified through the Washington State Pesticide Incident Reporting and Tracking (PIRT) program and the published literature.

This website was created through a partnership between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Environmental Educational Foundation, the Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center at the University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine and the National Farm Medicine Center.
