In Memory

Dr. John A. Feagin, Jr. peacefully passed away on September 1st at his home in Teton Village, WY, amongst friends and family.

Dr Feagin was a friend and mentor to countless current and past SOMOS members.  He was a legend in Sports Medicine and left a permanent mark on our field of medicine and will always be remembered as one of the greats!

In lieu of flowers, Dr Feagin and his family have requested that donations be made to the Feagin Leadership Program Endowment Fund (, a permanent endowment that will provide unrestricted support of the Feagin Leadership Program at Duke University.  This endowment will ensure that Dr. Feagin’s legacy lives on in perpetuity.  The Feagin Leadership Program provides transformational learning experiences that develop effective, ethical leaders who positively influence healthcare.

Thank you for your service, Dr Feagin. We have the watch.
