District 37 has tremendous healthcare resources - hospitals, doctors, nurses, and don't forget world-class first responders.  My goal is that all the residents of our community will be able to reach the services that they need to ensure a healthy lifestyle.  Recently, I went back to Dwight-Morrow, my high school, to promote my bill (A1672) that requires youth sports programs and cheerleading programs to have written head injury policies.  Concussions, we now know, can be very serious - every three minutes a young athlete is treated for a sports related concussion - having a plan in place when they occur, will make a real difference in keeping our children healthy.  U.S. Senator Bob Menendez and Congressman Bill Pascrell are are advancing similar legislation (SAFE PLAY Act) on the federal level- an important step in keeping our kids safe.
