Wheeler’s Family Health & Wellness Center at 43 Woodland Street in Hartford was the site of a visit this morning from U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) where he asked sports betting companies to stop targeting problem gamblers with promotions and ads, and to make it easy for problem gamblers to remove themselves from online gaming platforms. 

The senator additionally highlighted his Gambling Addiction Recovery, Investment and Treatment (GRIT) Act which would set aside federal funds to treat and research gambling addiction.
