Attention NJ Residents

Scott Benner

Call New Jersey Governor Corzine: Ask him to Sign AB 267 and Support the Health and Safety of Students with Diabetes!

 

Hello Everyone,

I need you to take action regarding legislation that would allow for better diabetes management. Assembly Bill 267 permits students to remain in the classroom while they monitor and treat their diabetes, instead of the current situation in which they miss classroom instructional time, interaction with their peers during lunch and extracurricular activities because in many cases they can monitor and treat their diabetes only in the presence of the school nurse.  The bill also allows for trained volunteers to administer glucagon when a school nurse is unavailable.

 

This legislation overwhelmingly passed the Assembly and now sits on Governor Corzine’s desk ready to be signed. Call the Governor and ask him to support the health and safety of students with diabetes by signing Assembly Bill 267 into law!

 

Contact information and talking points are below:

Office of Governor Corzine: 609.292.6000

 

As someone who is directly impacted by Type 1 diabetes, it’s important for me that Governor Corzine sign Assembly Bill 267 into law.

 

This legislation permits students to manage their diabetes in the classroom and allows for trained volunteers to administer emergency medication when necessary.

 

Until there is a cure for this disease, it’s critical that students be able to manage their diabetes the best they can, in a manner that is not disruptive to their educational instruction.

 

Please sign Assembly Bill 267 into law and ensure the health and safety of all New Jersey students who deal with type 1 diabetes on a daily basis.
