Legislation sponsored by Assembly members Jack Conners, Joan M. Voss and Cleopatra G. Tucker to create individualized health care plans for students with diabetes and training in diabetes care for school employees was recently signed into law by Gov. Jon S. Corzine. “Diabetes is a disease that requires constant personal management,” said Conners (D-Camden/Burlington). “Until now, state law required students with diabetes to visit the school nurse for any and all medication, which was at best unfair to their education and at worst dangerous to their health.”
