Finger Lakes PGRC News:

Our Program Manager, Sarah Bryant, has been working hard to provide PGRC information to the Monroe County Court System.  Sarah’s focus is to work more closely with our local justice systems and provide problem gambling resources to those in need of services.  Her work has started to take her into counties bordering Monroe, including Wayne County!  We are hopeful that someday the court systems will include brief gambling screens, so that we can continue to provide referral to problem gambling treatment services.

The Monroe County Medical Society’s “The Bulletin” magazine features “Problem Gambling: The Hidden Addiction” for their May issue.  These copies will be distributed across Monroe County physician offices.  Take at look—The Bulletin – May June 2022 12-13 hotaling FL (1)


Our latest episode of “What Are The Odds” features Christopher Hennelly, an expert in tax filing.  He reviews a lot of information on how to file taxes for those who gamble. The Finger Lakes PGRC is here to assist anyone who may be experiencing a problem due to their gambling.
