A University of Cincinnati design project aimed at making opioid overdose reversal medication more accessible has been recognized by Fast Company.
AntiOD was named a finalist in the Health and Wellness category for the publication's World Changing Ideas Awards. The project was created by Claudia Rebola, assistant professor in UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, and a team of DAAP graduate students. They developed a naloxone-dispensing smart device to help combat the opioid epidemic. The dispensers are expected to be installed across Cincinnati this spring.
Fast Company‘s third annual World Changing Ideas Awards "celebrates businesses, policies and nonprofits that are poised help shift society to a more sustainable and equitable future." The competition drew nearly 2,000 submissions across 17 categories. Fast Company editors and reporters created lists of honorable mentions and finalists and their panel of judges picked winners in each category.
