NJ forms State Task Force on Epilepsy

Governor Chris Christie has signed a bill to establish the New Jersey Epilepsy Task Force. This statewide task force will develop recommendations to educate the public and healthcare professionals about epilepsy and treatments as well as to address the psychosocial issues, such as depression, discrimination and stigmatization.

The Act (S1928) was sponsored by Senator Fred Madden, Jr. (D-4) and Senator Diane Allen (R-7).

Can’t wait to see how this all unfolds.
