2012 NCRG Annual ReportIf you’ve been following Gambling Disorders 360° and the NCRG’s Twitter and Facebook feeds, you know that 2012 was a busy and successful year for our organization. To highlight our initiatives and major accomplishments, the NCRG recently released the 2012 Annual Report.

From successful events and new resources, to productive collaborations and innovative research projects, here are some of the highlights from 2012:

  • The NCRG awarded more than $870,000 to allow pioneering investigators the ability to implement unique and creative research methods to improve our understanding of pathological and youth gambling.
  • The NCRG formed new partnerships with national and regional organizations to share more about the organization’s quality research, publications and online resources than ever before.
  • To expand its reach, the NCRG’s leadership and staff presented or exhibited at more than 12 national and regional meetings — a record number of outreach events for the organization .
  • Designed specifically for human resources and employee assistance professionals, the first edition of the Gambling and Health series was published and provides these professionals with knowledge they can use to address gambling disorders and provide helpful referrals in their workplace.
  • The NCRG promoted the use of the newly-developed Brief Biosocial Gambling Screen (BBGS) to clinicians nationwide. This new screener is a direct result of NCRG funding.
  • The NCRG enhanced its Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board with members whose expertise will provide well-rounded guidance to the organization.

These are just a few of the NCRG’s accomplishments from last year. Click here to download the 2012 Annual Report and read more.
