Nov 14, 2011
WASHINGTON – The National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) today unveiled a newly redesigned website (www.ncrg.org) with interactive and user-friendly features and robust search capabilities. The new website includes expanded research and programs sections – with added information, pictures and videos from NCRG events – and streamlined content to make it easier to find information about NCRG initiatives, events, research and resources. The NCRG also integrated its social media platforms onto the website’s homepage to allow for easy access to the latest news on gambling disorders and responsible gaming from the organization’s Twitter feed (@theNCRG), Facebook account (Facebook.com/theNCRG) and blog (Gambling Disorders 360°).
“This remodeled website was designed with the user in mind and makes it easier for visitors to learn about gambling disorders, the NCRG and the work we do,” said Glenn Christenson, chairman of the NCRG. “Because the website is the virtual face of the NCRG, it was our goal to give visitors a visual description of the NCRG that showcases our efforts to help increase public education and awareness about gambling disorders and responsible gaming.”
The NCRG enhanced the research center of its website, integrating additional information about how to apply for NCRG grant funding, grant review criteria, key research findings, NCRG-funded research and an updated research library. The expanded public education and outreach section will include new features on the NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction, archived videos from the NCRG’s webinars and trainings for treatment providers.
