Health Equity Academy
Gambling has been expanded in Massachusetts in recent years, and many communities are unaware of the potential harms associated with problem gambling, the populations that are disproportionally affected, and the innovative prevention strategies we can use to address this important issue. This academy will increase the capacity of individuals and organizations to understand and operationalize health equity and address problem gambling through a series of interactive trainings in three tracks:
