The John Decker Society

The John Decker Society meets annually during the American College of Rheumatology’s Annual Scientific meeting.

The John Decker Society is comprised of present and former faculty and trainees of the Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program at the NIH. By its name, the John Decker Society reveres the legacy of Dr. John Decker, whose tradition of excellence in research, training, and dedication to service, helped shape the NIAMS that we know today.

To learn more about the legacy of Dr. John Decker, read the "In Memoriam - John L. Decker, M.D., 1921-2000" written by Dr. Paul Plotz and published in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism (2001, Vol. 44(9) pp.1975-6)
