Opioid Harm Reduction and Service Opportunities - CORA

 Combating Overdoses in Rural Areas (CORA) is a UMD student org that provides overdose prevention services to rural counties across Maryland. These communities often have fewer resources for people battling opioid addiction, and consequently, overdose rates are regularly as high as those in the cities. We are trying to correct this imbalance and lower the barrier to accessing help through educational modules, technology, and other resources.

As spring approaches, we are looking for new general body and executive board members to join our initiative! The time commitment is about an hour a week, with all meetings conducted over Zoom. Past events have included NARCAN training and guest speakers from the School of Public Health. If that sounds like something you’d be at all interested in, please follow this link: ter.ps/joincora. Feel free to reach out to cora.umd@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thanks!
