Gambling Disorders 360°

Exploring the latest news, issues and research relating to gambling disorders and responsible gaming

Akron Beacon Journal: NCRG Heads to Cleveland in July to Raise Awareness about Disordered Gambling

by: Institute Staff | Apr 26, 2010

Each year, representatives from the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) and the Institute for Research on Gambling Disorders hit the road to raise awareness about disordered gambling. As reported in the Akron Beacon Journal this weekend, our representatives will be heading to Cleveland, Ohio for the NCRG’s fourth annual road tour.

These road tours give us the opportunity to ensure the various audiences and individuals who have an interest in gambling disorders and responsible gaming – including regulators, policymakers, researchers, clinicians and gaming industry professionals – have access to the latest information about what’s happening in the field. Our representatives provide an update on the body of peer-reviewed research on gambling disorders, discuss NCRG-funded research projects that have received grants from the Institute and show how the findings from this research are being translated into practical applications for prevention, treatment and responsible gaming education.

If you’re interested in receiving more details about our Ohio trip, e-mail info [at] gamblingdisorders [dot] org, or leave a comment. You can read about last year’s road tour – to Black Hawk and Denver, Colo. – in the fall 2009 issue of Responsible Gaming Quarterly (PDF link – see cover story).
