With over 40 years of excellence, AJF-PRSSA at Rowan University strives to connect students with professionals from New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York. Located in Southern New Jersey, the chapter excels in blending practice and service to University and surrounding community. 

AJF-PRSSA hosts two national competitions focused on raising awareness of organ donation and cystic fibrosis. The National Organ Donor Awareness Competition (NODAC) encourages chapters to develop a campaign that will both raise awareness and the number of registered organ donors in each region. Since 1995, AJF-PRSSA registered thousands of new organ donors with the support from Gift of Life Philadelphia. The Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Competition (CFAC) celebrates the life of Collette Bleistein, a chapter Vice President who tragically lost her life to complications of cystic fibrosis. Schools are encouraged to create day-long events that raise awareness, research funds, and support for cystic fibrosis organizations around the country. 

The chapter holds a prestigious history of awards and recognition by PRSSA, PRSA Philadelphia, and New Jersey State Government. Recent awards include 2019 Star Chapter recognition and the 2018 F.H. Teahan Award for University Service.
