Student working on a research project.

Gambling Behaviors Among Asian Immigrant Elders

The goal of my research is two-fold: 1) to explore the experiences, cultural meanings, and definitions of gambling and problem gambling among Chinese and Korean immigrant elders from their own accounts, and, 2) to describe their gambling behaviors and other related well-being measures. I am looking for undergraduate volunteers who want to be involved in a research project, particularly those who are fluent in either Cantonese and Mandarin. They will be able to learn/experience the process of cross-cultural research.
