The First Poison Information Centre in Gujarat was started at NIOH by Dr. Aruna Dewan and she provided Voluntary Services for more than 15 years. CEARCH (Centre for Education, Awareness and Research on Chemicals and Health) is an effort to continue this service.
To provide academic inputs to the much neglected Discipline of Toxicology, CEARCH Toxicology Services had taken the initiative to organize a one day workshop on “Clinical Toxicology”. This Workshop had provided up to date knowledge on the Diagnosis and Management of common poisonings and had conducted by senior Toxicologists and Expert in Critical Care.
