The Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN), formerly the HMO Research Network, is led by Executive Director Jeanette May. Dr. May is responsible for all strategic and operational activities as overseen by the HCSRN Governing Board.  The all-volunteer Board operates as a democratic constituency, guided by a set of agreed upon bylaws.

Together, these visionary leaders are helping shape the future of the HCSRN and health systems-based research.
