NCRG Road Tour: College Consortium Meeting is Coming Up on July 26

by: NCRG Staff | Jul 15, 2011

As a part of this year’s NCRG Road Tour to Boston, Mass., we want to bring together university administrators, campus mental health professionals, student leaders and those who work with college students on a daily basis for a consortium to discuss what national and local organizations are doing to address gambling and gambling-related harms on college campuses. Join us on July 26 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling offices at 190 High Street, Suite 5, in Boston, Mass. You can RSVP by July 19 to Amy Martin at amartin [at] ncrg [dot] org or 202-552-2689.

For the past three years, the NCRG and the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling have placed a larger emphasis on college gambling through collaborative trainings and new online resources. In 2008, the NCRG partnered with colleges and universities to form the Task Force on College Gambling Policies, which developed A Call to Action – Addressing College Gambling: Recommendations for Science-based Policies and Programs. In March 2011, the NCRG built on those recommendations when it launched CollegeGambling.org – a comprehensive online resource for students, campus administrators, campus health professionals and parents that brings together the latest research and best practices in responsible gaming and the field of addiction awareness and prevention. 

The Massachusetts Council has worked with more than 20 colleges and universities throughout Massachusetts by offering training and technical assistance in campus gambling policies and developing prevention programs. The Council has created resources and training curriculum for university resident assistants and campus mental health professionals.

Representatives from the NCRG and Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling for this meeting will include:

- Alan Feldman, NCRG board member and senior vice president of public affairs for MGM Resorts International

- Christine Reilly, senior research director for the NCRG

- Ken C. Winters, Ph.D., member of the NCRG Scientific Advisory Board and director of the Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse and Research, University of Minnesota

- Marlene Warner, MA, executive director for the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling

- Jim Wuelfing, CPP-R, NRPP, prevention director for the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling

We hope you can join us! Please feel free to share this invitation and RSVP by July 19 to Amy Martin at amartin [at] ncrg [dot] org and (202) 552-2689.
