The Florida Chapter of the American College of Cardiology is profoundly saddened by the death of our colleague, Juan Aranda, Sr., MD, FACC.  As the founder and first President of the Puerto Rico Chapter, ACC, Dr. Aranda was an icon.  His strong belief in the College and its chapter system planted the seed of service and leadership in generations of leaders.  His many contributions to cardiology and especially mentoring fellows and junior attendings has had a lasting impact on the profession.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

President's Message

december 2020

At this time of year it is customary to wish everyone a happy holiday and new year. For 2020 it is no different - but I can’t begin to explain how sincere my wish is for your families and you to have a season that is festive and safe as we fight this pandemic. I hope that despite whatever you are going through, you can take a moment of reflection of all that has been and all that will be. I wish for all of us to come out on the other end of this with more wisdom, compassion and gratitude. I truly appreciate all you do to improve the cardiovascular health of patients across the state of Florida.

David Perloff, MD, FCACC

President, Florida Chapter ACC
