Melissa Carollo, captain of team Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group will be marching to raise funds.  All funds raised will support the needs of the patients and families of the Genetics Services Department at the Hackensack Meridian Health Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital.

The Genetics Service department is a leader in clinical genetics in the metropolitan area and has been in existence for more than 30 years, offering genetic services and testing for both children and adults. We work closely with the Genetics Service Department and think they do wonderful work with our patients.
