Article on College Students and Gambling by Medaille Professor to Be Published in Journal of Gambling Studies


An article by Donald E. Nowak Jr., Ph.D., a clinical assistant professor in Medaille’s Department of Counseling & Clinical Psychology, will be published in an upcoming issue of Journal of Gambling Studies. In the article, titled “A Meta-analytical Synthesis and Examination of Pathological and Problem Gambling Rates and Associated Moderators Among College Students, 1987–2016,” Dr. Nowak explains that more than 16 percent of college students qualify for some form of gambling disorder, with male minority students particularly at risk. Journal of Gambling Studies is the preeminent journal in the field of gambling disorder research.

Dr. Nowak plans further articles in the field, including studies of college student-athletes and gambling as well as examining gambling disorder and the LGBTQ population.
