NJSSNA is asking for your help. N.J. Legislative Bills A-4799 & S-3315 “Administration of Hydrocortisone Sodium Succinate in Public Schools for a student with Adrenal Insufficiency” is scheduled to be voted on this Thursday, February 21, 2019. NJSSNA does not support the self-administration of this medication due to the complexity of the management of the adrenal crisis and the administration process while a student is experiencing an adrenal crisis. We ask that you read the attached statement from NJSSNA, sample letter and legislative bill. If you agree with opposing this bill please contact your local state senators to voice your concerns before February 21, 2019.
