The Future Of Our State’s Responsible Gambling Campaign: Get Set Before You Bet (Prevention), Skill Level: Beginner

Alessandro Ciaffoncini of Origo Branding Company will be giving an update of the new youth sub-campaign of Get Set Before You Bet. The initiative, titled Change the Game Ohio, is designed to help teachers, parents and other influencers help prevent problem gambling among our state’s youth. We’ll be looking for feedback and advice from stakeholders like you – to help us determine which tools would be most useful in achieving the goal of protecting young people from the potential dangers of problem gambling.
