Kids, COVID and Convergence of Video Gaming & Gambling in Youth: What to Know in Unprecedented Times

Presented by: Julie M. Hynes, MA, RD, CPS

The world of what we have considered “gambling” has shifted dramatically in recent years, and exposure to gambling within video games is eye opening. In this webinar, participants will gain an understanding of recent trends in video gaming and how these trends have blurred the lines between what is gaming and gambling. We will focus on what the research says about the public health risks facing youth, discussing how COVID-19 has augmented the need to address these issues, and provide practical recommendations that can be applied in professional and personal settings.
