HAMDEN- Public officials, journalists, researchers and a top industry executive will assess the impact and reporting of casino gambling on New England—the experience in Connecticut and the promise in Massachusetts—during a free, public symposium next month hosted by Quinnipiac University and co-sponsored by the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling.

“The Big Gamble: The Costs, Benefits and Coverage of Casinos,” is being co-presented by the New England News Forum at the University of Massachusetts and the School of Communications at Quinnipiac with support from the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling. The event will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11 in the Mancheski Executive Seminar Room at the Lender School of Business Center, and will be preceded by a reception and movie screening on the campus.
