Recent improvements in medication, technology and dietary counseling for Type 2 Diabetes have the potential to dramatically improve patients’ lives. However, keeping up with all the changes and recommendations can be challenging, and no single provider can go at it alone. In 2021, we established MCT2D as a statewide collaborative designed to support Michigan physicians and care teams as we shift the paradigm of T2D care together, delivering the kind of state-of-the-art care our patients deserve.During our first year, with input from participating physician organizations, practices, and patients from across the state, we have developed tools and educational programs to reduce barriers to delivery of high-quality Type 2 Diabetes care. And we are just getting started!It has been a privilege to lead the collaborative during the first year. I am grateful for the support and collaboration from so many individuals and organizations from across the state. I will be handing over the leadership of the collaborative to a new team of co-directors as of July 14, as I have accepted a new position outside of the state of Michigan, as Chair of Family Medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Our fantastic team of quality improvement specialists, designers, data managers, data analysts, and clinical experts will continue the important work of the collaborative.
