Recently, the Concerned Black Nurses of Newark honored Atkins with its Research Nurse of the Year award in May 2006.

"I am honored that I have been selected for induction in to the Rutgers African-American Alumni Alliance Hall of Fame," said Atkins. "The accomplishments of the present and previous inductees are truly noteworthy and I am humbled to be associated with such a distinguished group."

A Cherry Hill, N.J. resident, Atkins earned a Ph.D from Temple University's Department of Public Health in 2004. He received his Master of Science in Nursing from Rutgers College of Nursing in 1998. Atkins earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Brown University in 1990 and his Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of Pennsylvania in 1994.

He is co-founder and president of the STARR program (Sports Teaching Adolescents Responsibility and Resiliency), a community-based youth development program and co-founder and director of Healthy Futures for Camden Youth, a public health initiative which is affiliated with Rutgers University.
