The Division is collaborating with EPIC Risk Management to study professional athletes’ relationships with problematic gambling behavior. This research aims to (1) describe the current state of gambling and gambling-related problems among professional athletes in North America, (2) examine key correlates and other considerations for these athletes’ gambling-related outcomes, and (3) assess these athletes’ key gambling and gambling-related problem awareness, experiences, and actions. The Division will use open science principles and practices for this work.
