Epidemiology

in the spotlight

A dozen UMass Amherst research assistants (RAs) are doing key work this academic year on the Social and Economic Impacts of Gambling in Massachusetts (SEIGMA) study. The RAs are collaborating with SEIGMA team members analyzing data for the upcoming release of their baseline survey results.

A team led by Research Associate Professor of Epidemiology Rachel Volberg recently won a more than $900,000 per year grant from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to conduct a first-of-its-kind, multi-year cohort study examining the causes of problem gambling.
