Peggy Bailey is the Center’s Director of Health Integration and oversees our Connecting the Dots: Bridging Systems for Better Health project.

Peggy’s career includes work on federal, state and local policy and service delivery on a wide variety of issue areas, including Medicaid eligibility and benefits for families and people with disabilities, public health innovation, behavioral health service delivery and integration with primary care, youth homelessness policy and service delivery, and child welfare.
