UC team uses design to combat opioid crisis

UC team uses design to combat opioid crisis

Like many cities across the country, Cincinnati has been rocked by the opioid epidemic, with an ever-fluctuating range of 50 to 80 overdoses per week across the Tristate. Many of those victims are revived by the overdose reversal medication, naloxone, which has proven to be a crucial lifesaving tool during this crisis. Claudia Rebola, graduate studies coordinator in UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), designed a device to make naloxone more accessible to those in need, bringing a model she helped create first in Providence, Rhode Island, to spaces in Cincinnati that are most at risk.

DAAP Equity and Inclusion

At the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning we value a tolerant, inclusive, and caring learning and teaching environment that allows for the development of creativity through our common and diverse interests. As creative practitioners, we engage in conversations every day that cross boundaries and connect communities, locally, nationally, and worldwide. We recognize that the same skills of active reflection and engaged action that continually reinvent our experience of the world also serve the broader goal of participating in the creation of a vibrant, just society in which all members of our community are valued.
