Alcohol and Other Drugs Education Specialist
Elora Orazio has been with CHEW since June 2020. She works to prevent students from experiencing problems with alcohol and other drugs use and to prevent problems from occurring again after a student has had an alcohol or drug related issue. These efforts can be seen around campus in the forms of Blue Jays in the Blue Zone, Opioid Orientation, individual motivational interviewing sessions, and more. Elora collaborates with many departments across campus to help provide students with a supportive environment that bolsters their overall well-being.
Previously, Elora has worked at Binghamton University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is a Doctoral Candidate in Community Research and Action at Binghamton University where she researches the predictors of Simultaneous Alcohol and Marijuana Use (SAM) in emerging adult college students. Additionally, Elora holds her MPH from Boston University School of Public Health and her BS in Health Education with a minor in Spanish and a concentration in Women’s Studies from Worcester State University. When not working, you can often find Elora cooking a delicious meal, listening to podcasts, tending to her house plants, or spending time with her loving dog, Maslow.
