TRENTON – A joint resolution sponsored by Senator Fred Madden (D-Gloucester/Camden), that recognizes March as “Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month” has been signed by Governor Chris Christie.
The designation will help raise the public’s awareness of Multiple Sclerosis, promote an understanding of the scope of the disease, and assist those with MS in making educated decisions about their health care, according to Senator Madden. The National MS Education and Awareness Day is also in March.
“Those suffering from multiple sclerosis endure pain and constant challenges and yet, there is so little we know about the disease,” said Madden, Vice-Chairman of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee. “An MS Awareness Month will help bring understanding and knowledge to a disease that thousands of New Jersey residents struggle with every day.”
