When programs are aligned across sectors, they can better serve community members. In this new season of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast, guests from all corners of the public sector — behavioral health, criminal justice, and housing, among others — sit down to discuss how resources can be more impactful and efficient when everyone rows in the same direction.

This initial episode offers insight into atypical cross-sector partnerships that offer great potential to align for better outcomes, such as state budget offices and legislators. The episode is hosted by Karen Seaver Hill, director of leadership development, National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD). She is joined by Gretchen Hammer, MPH, principal, Public Leadership Group and consultant, NAMD; Kate McEvoy, executive director, NAMD; and Mark Larson, senior vice president, leadership and capacity building, Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS).

Allow up to 20 seconds for audio playback to begin.
