Individuals with a history of a gambling problem are invtied to take part in a follow up study examining variations in gambling, health, and other behaviors over time. We are seeking people with a compulsive gambling problem who are either under age 40 years or are 60 years or older.
Volunteers must agree to be contacted every six months through 2015 to answer questions about their gambling, health, and other behaviors. You do NOT need to visit Iowa City to take part in the research. We will be happy to come to your town to meet with you for the initial interview.
The initial interview will last approximately 3-4 hours. People will be compensated $75 plus travel and parking expenses.
Follow up interviews will take 30-60 minutes and are conducted by phone. People will be compensated $35 for each follow up interview.
This study is being conducted by the University of Iowa Department of Psychiatry.
