I will continue to fight to ensure the 29th Legislative District is put first!

Thank you M. Teresa Ruiz for sponsoring bill S3118 that will establish a public awareness campaign to promote early conversations about advance care planning and end-of-life care. This bill aligns with #GOCCNJ mission for patients to discuss, decide, and document final stages of life care goals which will result in lower ICU admissions, increase palliative and hospice use, and lower hospital deaths. #GOCCNJ #goalsofcare #AdvanceCarePlanning #DiscussDecideDocument ...

Thank you Senators #JoeVitale, #RonaldLRice, Senator Fred H. Madden,#JamesBeach, Anthony Bucco, Declan J. O'Scanlon Jr., #PatrickJDiegnanJr, Senator Troy Singleton, #LorettaWeinberg for sponsoring bill S2682 that requires certain health care facilities to provide information concerning palliative care and hospice care.
