Visionist Wins Health & Human Services Opioid Code-a-Thon
Visionist placed first among 25 teams competing in the “Prevention” category at the Dept. of Health & Human Services Opioid Code-a-Thon. 56 teams competed in total.
Our winning solution is called TakeBack America. It allows the general public to easily locate sites where they can safely dispose of leftover medication, reducing opportunities for theft or abuse. It also allows public health practitioners and community planners to evaluate whether these take-back site locations are properly positioned in order to be accessible by the most at-risk communities.
Congratulations to the Visionist team on their achievement!
