Spectrum News: After delay, AntiOD device ready for deployment

Narcan-dispensing device, created at UC, to be implemented in two Ohio counties

Earlier this year, the University of Cincinnati launched a project aimed at educating the public about opioid overdoses and how to help while creating access to the overdose reversal medication naloxone, or Narcan. AntiOD is a smart dispenser that contains everything needed to start aiding an overdose victim while waiting for emergency help to arrive.

After a series of redesigns, plus work and research in the community, AntiOD is ready to be implemented in Ohio's Summit and Cuyahoga counties, according to Claudia Rebola, associate dean for research and associate professor in UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.

Rebola and one of her graduate students in DAAP's Myron E. Ullman School of Design, Ryan Norton, spoke to Spectrum News about the continuation and implementation of AntiOD. Read more and watch the interview.
