IN REMEMBRANCE OF 

DR. ROBERT HUNTER, Ph.D.

Perhaps the nations most recognized problem gambling treatment expert, Dr. Robert hunter co-designed and directed The Problem Gambling Center until his passing in March 2018. He was known for being Las Vegas' problem gambling doctor and indeed, he deserved it. He treated more problem gamblers than anyone in the world dating back to the 1980s. He very quietly saved thousands when they needed it the most. He lived in a way that very few can legitimatley say they do -- entirely dedicated  to the well being and happiness of others. He will greatly be missed by family, friends, colleagues and patients around the world. The Problem Gambling Center will live on in his legacy.
