Brooklyn PGRC

What’s New:

The Queens and Brooklyn PGRC’s would like to thank Ava Caldwell and her team at Brightpoint Health’s outpatient substance abuse clinic in East New York, Brooklyn for inviting our staff to facilitate a round-table discussion about problem gambling. We are thankful for the lively and engaging conversation that was had and were happy to share information about resources with the counselors. We hope to continue to be in touch with the Brightpoint Health team as further opportunities for collaboration arise.
