ODD started 20 years ago after Rowan University’s PRSSA Chapter founder, Anthony J. Fulginiti, received an organ transplant from his sister. ODD’s mission is to bring awareness to Rowan’s community about the importance of organ donation. Because this is a huge event for both PRSSA and PRaction, the fall semester was dedicated to early planning, fundraising and research.
