This complex problem involves issues that affect not only health, medicine, technology, policy, business, but also countless other facets of our society -- and fields that are represented here at Columbia. The event will feature faculty from SEAS, Public Health, the Medical Center, among others.

We invite students from all schools at the university to participate in this exciting opportunity to address such a complex and pervasive problem. Teams could address production, prescription/ dispensing, policy and lobbying, and many other fundamental challenges, all of which would benefit from cross-disciplinary solutions.

This Design Challenge aims to generate innovative interdisciplinary technology solutions and policies that could have an immediate impact on the epidemic of opioid addiction. Teams selected to continue will win continued support for design opportunities on and off campus in the spring.
