  • Congratulations Lisa on NJ legislation!

    I was thrilled to read the HCMA email about the package of legislation here in NJ aimed at including cardiac screening/assessment at every well child visit. I know that was the result of many, many hours of tireless work on your part. What a great accomplishment to get this far!

    Hopefully, the 49 other states will follow suit. Thank you for all you do!!

          That is great, do you know if any other states have adopted legislation since then?
