Pillar of the Orthopaedic Profession
COL John Feagin

In 2019, we lost a true legend, COL John Feagin, MD. 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, and he will always be remembered as one of the greats!

There is currently significant support to nominate Dr. Feagin as a Pillar of the Orthopaedic Profession by the American Orthopaedic Association. As stated by the AOA:

"The AOA offers mentees the opportunity to formally honor and champion a Fellow of The American Orthopaedic Association (FAOA) for his/her leadership and teaching of faculty/professional partners, fellows, and residents.

To honor a Pillar of the Orthopaedic Profession, new donor groups work together to make a commitment of new gifts of cash, stock or pledges totaling a minimum of $75,000 by March 31 for June recognition."

In recognition for his outstanding contributions to SOMOS, the SOMOS Board of Directors would like to propose a donation matching program to support the efforts to recognize COL Feagin as an AOA Pillar. For every donation dollar (up to $5,000) SOMOS will match the donation.
