Murphy Signs Resolution Designating “A Day in the Life – Type 1 Diabetes Day”

TRENTON — Governor Phil Murphy signed AJR152 into law, which designates the Monday before Thanksgiving Day of each year as “A Day in the Life – Type 1 Diabetes Day.” 

“It is our obligation to enhance awareness around Type 1 Diabetes and bring to light the daily challenges of thousands of New Jerseyans who live with this autoimmune disease,” said Governor Murphy. “Our Administration is committed to supporting these individuals in every way possible, taking us one step closer to a fairer New Jersey for all.”

Each year, more than 30,000 children and adults are diagnosed with T1D. Individuals with T1D suffer from the inability to produce insulin, resulting in a lifetime of health complications as there is no known cure.

This resolution will raise awareness of T1D and note the need for more research to help the 3 million Americans with T1D.

Sponsors of the legislation include Assembly members Eric Houghtaling, Joann Downey, Roy Freiman, and Senator Vin Gopal.
