NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

Welcome to the NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction Blog

We're just a little less than a month away from the 7th annual NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction, scheduled for Nov. 12-14 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and co-sponsored by the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) and the Institute for Research on Pathological Gambling and Related Disorders, a program of the Division on Addictions at Cambridge Health Alliance, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

Themed Lost in Translation: The Challenge of Turning Good Research into Best Practices, this year’s conference will bring together more than 400 leaders from the government, gaming industry, and research and treatment communities to discuss the latest research on pathological gambling and related disorders and how its findings can inform the development of practical solutions to prevent and treat disordered gambling. The conference also will explore various approaches to responsible gaming across the country and around the world.
