The Iowa Department of Public Health will be offering a Responsible Gambling webinar series titled The Journey Forward: Gaining New Knowledge for the Prevention and Treatment of Problem Gambling.

This month-long series will highlight both state and national leaders who will share innovative approaches to addressing prevention and treatment of problem gambling and related responsible gambling efforts. Participants will experience new insights into the current Be #1 at Getting Help campaign, financial literacy, the evolution of sports wagering, the relationship between gaming and gambling, and Iowa’s current gambling landscape.

While these trainings are complimentary, registration is required. We strongly recommend registering at least 3 business days prior to the webinar to receive full details in advance. Please note, registering later than recommended may mean you will not receive your log-in instructions until the morning of the training session.

The Journey Forward: Gaining New Knowledge for the Prevention and Treatment of Problem Gambling will compliment statewide Responsible Gambling Awareness Month efforts that will take place in March.
