Last month the Opioid crisis was declared a national emergency. Regardless of race, gender and socioeconomic status, addiction can affect anyone. Opioid overdose is preventable, and everyone should have access to naloxone.
What it does
Our platform connects those who have access to naloxone, to those who immediately need it. The platform is built to help with the last mile delivery problem by leveraging the community of people who are readily able to help.
How we built it
The platform interfaces over multiple different technologies, primarily working through ReactJS. On the back-end, the platform takes advantage of Flask, Sqlite, and the Twilio API.
Challenges we ran into
Connecting our React front end to our Sqlite database with POST requests presented a rather large and time consuming challenge, which was in the end a very rewarding teaching experience.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we took an idea and executed it rather well. We are proud to have finished a project that could potentially have a very large impact on the world.
What we learned
How to work very well in an interdisciplinary team. Our team comes from a very broad range of backgrounds, ages and experiences.
What's next for Telos
Integration with emergency services to help supplement the existing infrastructure.
