Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation of NJ
- FSCNJ has developed a new comprehensive website to help families who are dealing with the transition from school to work. Called “Transition Matters”, the site can be accessed as a popular link on fscnj.org or through its own URL: www.transitionmattersnj.org. Take a look at the website and let us know what you think!
- Governor Christie has signed a bill easing medical marijuana restrictions for children. The issue arose when several children with Dravet’s Syndrome could not participate in NJ’s program due to rules.

- S2227 requiring medical examiner training on Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) has been signed by Gov. Christie.

- Governor Christie signed into law S2353 extending the term of the NJ Epilepsy Task Force by one year and adding an additional member from the NJ Association of School Nurses.
