Since 2001, every New Jersey Governor sitting in office has issued a proclamation declaring May 15 to June 15 as Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month in the Garden State. on behalf of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS).
Governor Chris Christie kept the tradition going in 2014, and the proclamation was received by NJCTS via NJ Senator Christopher “Kip” Bateman’s office on May 22.
