Dr. Kasey Claborn and her team have been awarded the Google Cloud Customer Award in the Education category for their groundbreaking work using Google Cloud to combat overdoses in the state of Texas.

As the press release from the Google Cloud Customer Awards reads, “In 2020 alone, more than 93,000 Americans died of drug overdoses. One of the biggest hurdles to solving this crisis is a data problem that hinders the work of those trying to bring life-saving resources to areas and individuals who need them. Google Cloud and partner Maven Wave enabled an interdisciplinary team of developers, UX designers, community organizations, and clinical and managerial partners at Dell Medical School and the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at The University of Texas at Austin to create a unique platform that is helping to save lives.”
