Connecticut Senate Passes Bill for PANDAS Research
FOLLOW UP 5/20/12:
Taking steps to understand PANDAS From the Office of State Sen. KEVIN WITKOS “While this bill passed unanimously in the State Senate, it unfortunately did not see a vote in the House of Representatives.”
We have ground breaking news to report! The State of Connecticut Senate has UNANIMOUSLY passed the bill “AN ACT CONCERNING A STUDY OF PEDIATRIC AUTOIMMUNE NEUROPSYCHIATRIC DISORDER ASSOCIATED WITH STREPTOCOCCAL INFECTIONS”.
This bill requires “The Commissioner of Public Health…to do a study on PANDAS to learn how it’s diagnosed and treated in this country and others and an evaluation of the level of recognition of the disorder in the medical community. The report is to be finished no later than January 1, 2013”.
Further information can be found on the State of CT General Assembly website.
Thank you to those who helped this bill become reality, including parents Jim Carson, Lynn Johnson, and all others who submitted testimonies to show how devastating this disorder is.
