Norma Rodgers, president of the New Jersey State Nurses Association (NJSNA), was honored as Citizen of the Year by the Brothers of Eta Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity at the Rutgers University Medical School in Newark on Nov. 19.

For advocating for a gun violence study by the Centers for Disease Control being a vocal supporter of New Jersey nurses Norma Rodgers, president of the New Jersey State Nurses Association (NJSNA), was honored as Citizen of the Year by the Brothers of Eta Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity at the Rutgers University Medical School in Newark on Nov. 19.

“Norma was selected due her accomplishments as president of the New Jersey State Nurses Association,” said Olin T. Jackson Sr., chapter member. “One of her distinctions (among many) is that she has been recognized for her advocacy with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to declare gun violence as a national health issue.”

NJSNA and nurses around the country has been very vocal in calling to repeal language blocking the CDC from conducting gun violence research and appropriate funding to examine the impact gun violence has on healthcare. Rodgers has spoken out about the issue at events with lawmakers, with Steve Adubato on his Capitol Report television show and in many news and industry publications.

Rodgers was honored during Eta Pi’s Achievement Week which is designed to seek out and give due recognition to those individuals at the local and international levels who have made a noteworthy contribution toward improving the quality of life for Americans. Omega Psi Phi Fraternity (ΩΨΦ) is an organizational Brotherhood consisting of 750 chapters throughout the world.
