AAAHC's 2020 officers are Ira Cheifetz, DMD, board chair; Timothy J. Peterson, MD, chair-elect; Arnaldo Valedon, MD, immediate past board chair; and David Shapiro, MD, secretary and treasurer.
The four officers "bring extensive experience and expertise in patient-centric ambulatory care" to their roles, AAAHC said in a press release.
