Dr. Carl Hart - Author, Associate Professor at Columbia University, New York, USA

Dr. Carl Hart is an associate professor of psychology and psychiatry at Columbia University. He has also published nearly 100 scientific articles in the area of neuropsychopharmacology. Dr. Hart will be presenting the keynote address on what we have learned from drugs and addiction and how we can apply those lessons on gambling. Drugs face many of the same stigma, policy, and access issues as gambling, and as such provide our industry with lessons already learned in improving social welfare.
