NEO to host forum on gambling addiction next week

MIAMI, Okla. — Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College in Miami, Okla., will host a public policy forum titled “Dealing with Gambling Addiction” from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, in the Blue and Gold Room of the Bruce Carter Student Union.

The NEO Social Sciences Department is sponsoring the event for anyone who may have a gambling addiction or knows of someone who may have a gambling addiction.

“We have an excellent panel assembled for this topic. We have Wiley Harwell, a counselor for the Oklahoma Association for Problem and Compulsive Gambling; Lori Kurtz, a counselor and psychology instructor at NEO A&M; Linda Percy, the director of human resources at Buffalo Run Casino; and Cathy Scott, the accounting supervisor at Buffalo Run Casino,” said Jeff Birdsong, chair of NEO’s social science department. “This should be a very informative and useful for the students at NEO and for the community.”
