AntiOD

Claudia Rebola

Claudia Rebola is currently working in the project “AntiOD” designing access and combating the opioid crisis by design via a Communications in the Urban Environment (CUE) grant—UC funded project, as a continuation of two previous grants from the Department of Health Rhode Island, in which 50+ “NaloxBox” cabinets were placed in the Providence area (www.naloxbox.org). The goal of the project is to provide semipublic access to Naloxone along with information and training materials in administering/saving a life as well as designing access points and integrating data monitoring of responses. The significance of this project is to provide actionable examples of how to administer Naloxone for public use in responses to the opioid crisis where 50-80 people die from overdose a week in Cincinnati alone. This project has partnered with urban communities and has gained public media interest including the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, Citi-Lab/The Atlantic.
