Workshop Description

Brianne Doura-Schawohl, BA, will provide an overview of the sports wagering landscape in the US, and examine the primary ways that US gambling stakeholders are establishing and infrastructure that replicates the mistakes of more mature markets which are currently experiencing a great deal of problem gambling-related harms.

The presenter will cover a variety of proactive approaches that legislators, regulators, health officials, and private stakeholders could and should be taking to create a safe and sustainable gambling market.
