Join us on April 28, 2021 from 10 am to 12 pm for a presentation by Daniel Trolaro, Assistant Executive Director of The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, who will discuss how COVID-19 has impacted gambling, signs and symptoms to watch for, ways to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors, as well as preventative strategies to equip you with the knowledge and tools to prevent and also to assist those who are struggling with addiction. During our table talk discussion, share your thoughts and concerns with like-minded faith-based and community partners and leave with actionable items to implement in your organization.
