Samuel L. Moschella, MD—An Exceptional Leader

JAMA Dermatol. 2017;153(3):262. doi:10.1001/jamadermatol.2016.5507

One of the coauthors of the accompanying article,1 Dr Moschella, “Sam,” was involved in the historical, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of turning the tide of the leprosy. Sam has devoted his professional life to teaching, and has earned the endless gratitude of countless residents, students and patients. Gone are the days when he would bound up 6 flights at the old Lahey Clinic building, or when he would play hockey with the priests on the Boston College rink. But, on his 90th birthday, he led the discussion at the Atlantic Dermatological Conference in Boston. Brilliantly!
