Mission, Vision, & Values


The Michigan Collaborative for Type 2 Diabetes (MCT2D) seeks to engage and empower medical providers across the state to accelerate dissemination and implementation of evidence-based strategies to prevent or slow disease progression of Type 2 Diabetes.
Rather than simply focusing on optimizing HbA1c as the disease progresses over a patient’s lifetime, the goal will be to support providers to deliver high quality behavioral and medical treatment to prevent, slow or reverse the course of the disease.
Given the persistent disparities in prevalence and quality of care, our efforts to disseminate effective strategies will specifically addressing social determinants of health and supporting providers who are working in low resource / high need environments.

 Our Three Initiatives

  1. Support lower carbohydrate eating.
  2. Expand access to and use of continuous glucose monitoring for type 2 diabetes.
  3. Remove barriers to prescribing newer classes of drug treatments for type 2 diabetes, specifically: GLP-1 receptor agonists and SGLT-2 inhibitors.


MCT2D’s mission is to engage and empower clinicians and patients across Michigan to accelerate dissemination and implementation of evidence-based strategies to prevent and reverse progression of Type 2 diabetes and its complications


A world where Type 2 Diabetes is no longer a progressive disease.
