HANC supports Community Partners, The Legacy Project, and the COVID-19 CAB coalition to achieve representation and build relationships with historically underrepresented communities in clinical research.


HANC supports cross-network working groups for network leadership, communications, data management centers, performance evaluation, and site coordinators to promote greater information sharing, collaboration, and process standardization.
