with Veterans Service Organizations:
One Center's Experience
by Jeff Whittle, M.D., M.P.H., Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center, Milwaukee,
We would like to offer a heartfelt thank you and farewell to Gerry McGlynn, who served as FORUM's
Editor-in-Chief since 2004. With Gerry at the helm, FORUM maintained its dedication to bringing
information derived from health services research to the attention of both VA clinicians and managers.
Her energy, enthusiasm, and leadership will be sorely missed. Gerry stepped down as Director of the
Center for Information and Dissemination and Education Resources (CIDER) in early 2015. We wish
her all the best.
