Upcoming presentation – Accepting money from the gambling industry as a dangerous consumption
The foundation is hosting a presentation by Peter Adams who is deputy head of the School of Population Health at the University of Auckland and Associate Director of the Centre for Addiction Research.
Peter Adams has published widely on the ethics of receiving funding from dangerous consumption industries. He is currently working on a manuscript for Cambridge
University Press on accepting money from tobacco, alcohol and gambling industries.
His presentation will explore the way those who accept industry money engage in a wider system of linkages aimed at influencing policy and regulation. Profits from gamblers provides the financial base to engage health services, community groups, government agencies and researchers in this area, and their contribution has played a key role in blocking and diverting gambling policy and regulation.
When: Tuesday, 9 December 2014, 12:15 – 1:30pm
Where: Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation, level 6, 14-20 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne
