Claudia B. Rebola, graduate studies coordinator in UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, designed a device to make naloxone more accessible to those in need. Her intent is to bring a model she helped create first in Providence, R.I., to spaces in Cincinnati by spring. Rebola has worked with graduate students to create AntiOD, a naloxone-dispensing smart device installed in semi-public places with step-by-step instructions for bystanders.
