Medaille Professor Publishes Articles Examining Gambling Disorder in College Students
Donald E. Nowak Jr., Ph.D., a clinical assistant professor in Medaille's Department of Counseling & Clinical Psychology, has recently published two articles in an ongoing series of research submissions examining gambling disorder in the college student population. The first, “College Student Gambling Disorder: A Review of Research (1991-2017),” in the Chronicle Journal of Addiction and Therapy, surveys the past quarter-century of research on the topic. A second article, “A Meta-Analytical Synthesis and Examination of Pathological and Problem Gambling Rates Among College Athletes,” is forthcoming in the Journal for the Study of Sports and Athletes in Education. The article looks at the athlete subset of the college population, as well as the impact of NCAA rules and regulations on athletes’ gambling while in college.
Dr. Nowak joined the Medaille faculty in July 2014. He earned his master's degree in mental health counseling and his Ph.D. in counselor education at the State University of New York at Buffalo. His fields of specialization include online/hybrid course construction and instruction, group counseling, grief and loss counseling, gambling and addiction studies, and counselor wellness and self-care.
On May 17, Medaille College’s 2019 graduates walked the stage and accepted their diplomas at the College’s graduate and undergraduate commencement ceremonies, as friends, family, and Medaille faculty and staff assembled at Kleinhans Music Hall to celebrate.
