We were inspired by to create this dashboard to inform Americans about the opioid crisis and give them alternatives and resources.
What it does
This dashboard visually displays opioid prescription, overdose (fatal and non-fatal) by state and county via user dropdown selection and gives them alternatives (pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic) along with national resources to consult.
How we built it
We built it via Python with a Flask framework using Dash and Pandas libraries along with API requests to various USA government public APIs.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into challenges connecting the frontend of our code to the backend framework. This resulted in the application being unfinished, we would have liked to link local resources in the user's area also, but ran out of time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the fact that we managed to get a working dashboard displaying graphical data.
What we learned
We learned that perhaps we should've collaborated on getting the frontend to mix with the backend earlier, so we would not run out of time to get the application done.
What's next for Opioid Tracker Dashboard
Next we will hopefully finish connecting the front with the back, get the local resources displayed on the dashboard, and host this dashboard online!
