What’s New:

Spring has sprung on Long Island! The LIPGRC is grateful to be out and about!

Thank you to Farmingdale State College for hosting their Health and Wellness Fair on April 14th. The event was for Alcohol Awareness Month. Throughout the day vendors shared healthy, fun events, as well as treatment for alcohol misuse. Students, faculty and wellness organizations enjoyed great weather and fun events.

LIPGRC is excited to work with Farmingdale State College. In our efforts together, we will bring gambling addiction education, as well as  supports, to the whole campus. College students are at high risk for developing a problem. With more chances to gamble over the internet now is a great time to spread the word!
