CORRE Community Overdose Response and Recovery Effort
The United States are amid an opioid crisis, but theres an app to help! CORRE is a University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) student-led commercial venture that aims to enable the Texas community to prevent opioid overdose deaths. We provide a platform to bridge the problem (opioid overdose) with the solution (naloxone). We train our app users to safely assess opioid overdoses, administer naloxone, and provide them with free naloxone kits. Our app network allows app users to respond to overdoses in life-saving minutes. Our discrete wearable device monitors blood oxygen levels. When blood oxygen levels are low, GPS location is sent to the app.
