Unpacking the Root Causes of Problem Gambling in the Asian Community: From Research to Action

Register now to join Tufts CTSI and the Addressing Disparities in Asian Populations through Translational Research (ADAPT) Coalition for the 7th Annual Asian Health Symposium “Unpacking the Root Causes of Problem Gambling in the Asian Community: From Research to Action.”

This half-day in-person event will be held Friday, September 30, 2022 from 9:00AM-1:30PM on the Tufts Health Sciences Campus. (Breakfast and Registration: 9:00AM-9:30AM; Lunch and Networking: 12:30PM-1:30PM)

The recently launched Asian CARES report illuminates how problem gambling is the “canary in the coal mine” for the Asian community. Join us to learn about the root causes as well as the short and long-term impacts of gambling addiction on children, families, and the broader Asian community and how problem gambling can be addressed by using a public health approach.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the root causes and systemic conditions that lead to gambling as the espoused form of entertainment for Asian immigrants.
  • Understand the role of community-led organizations as cultural brokers well-suited to provide in-language programs, services, and interventions addressing problem gambling in the Asian immigrant communities.
  • Describe examples of casino marketing tactics targeting the Asian immigrant communities and identify stakeholders and strategies to address this issue.
