Focus on the Future – TOGETHER! The name says a lot. This year we are honored to partner with Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling, a locally based non-profit that is dedicated to increasing awareness of public health issues around gambling and gaming, expanding the availability and integration of services, and supporting advocacy, research, and programs for education, prevention, and responsible gambling and gaming.
Focus on the Future – TOGETHER! combines the best of the annual conferences both our organizations have offered over the years, providing valuable insights on the tools and resources available for effective prevention, treatment, and community engagement.
