Rowan University Hosts 14th Annual National Organ Donor Awareness Competition

February 10, 2010

GLASSBORO, N.J. — The Anthony J. Fulginiti PRSSA Chapter at Rowan University is sponsoring its 14th annual National Organ Donor Awareness Competition (NODAC) to promote organ donation and encourage family discussion.

In 1992, Rowan PRSSA founder and current Faculty Advisor Anthony J. Fulginiti received a life-saving kidney transplant. The Chapter hosted its first Organ Donor Day the following spring, and after four years, began hosting NODAC in 1996.

Rowan PRSSA will host its annual Organ Donor Day during National Donate Life Month in April to educate the Rowan University campus and surrounding community about organ donation. Rowan PRSSA created NODAC to encourage PRSSA Chapters from around the country to host similar events.

The Chapter winning first place will receive $400 and a plaque at the PRSSA 2010 National Conference awards ceremony in Washington D.C. Chapters placing second through fourth will also receive monetary awards and plaques. NODAC applications are due by March 19. Final packets are to be submitted by May 5, 2010.

For more information or for an application, contact NODAC Chairperson Jeff Miele.
