Innovations in Integration Podcast

Graphic icon/link to Podcast pageWe recognize that some of the best real-world expertise comes from people doing this work every single day – people like you! And so we’re always thinking about ways to collect your experiences and share them with the network.

One of the ways we thought we could do that was to launch our very own CIN podcast.  We’re calling it Innovations in Integration. Our aim is to highlight some of the particularly interesting and innovative programs our colleagues have developed, in the hopes that we might inspire others to try similar programs in their communities.
