Combating Overdoses in Rural Areas (CORA) is Maryland’s first nonprofit dedicated to curbing the effects of the opioid epidemic in rural communities. Founder Kevin Tu is on a mission to reduce opioid usage by addressing resource disparities between rural and urban communities. Kevin has partnered with 60 student volunteers,181 community partners, and is projected to serve 360,000 people in the coming semester across Maryland and in parts of New York, West Virginia, Virginia, and Delaware. Through concentrated efforts in education, research, and technology, CORA hopes to remove the barrier of access to treatment and prevention resources in rural communities.
