Research Associate Professor of Epidemiology Rachel Volberg is among the gambling experts who spoke to The New York Times for a recent article examining problem gambling among women. Volberg, who researches the epidemiology of gambling, spoke about the lack of knowledge on the topic among scientists. Though problem gambling appears to be on the rise among women at or near retirement, hard numbers are difficult to find.
“There’s not much support for gambling research in the U.S.,” Volberg explained.
