Patient Advisory Board Recruitment Handout (Patient)
What is the MCT2D Patient Advisory Board (PAB)?
At the center of this work is a group of patients and caregivers who meet six times a year to discuss and share their experiences. As a patient and/or caregiver affected by type 2 diabetes, we hope you will consider joining. As a PAB member, you will meet others and work with the MCT2D to:
Help us understand the issues facing people with type 2 diabetes.
Brainstorm ideas for how to better support patients and their communities
Give input on tools and services
Work together with other patients, families and caregivers
Help us make programs and services that work for patients in the lifelong journey of diabetes
What Does Being a Patient Advisor Mean?
The Patient Advisory Board meets for 1 hour once every two months. The meetings are held virtually via Zoom. Members can join the meeting using their computer, tablet, smartphone, or by calling in using a home phone. Each meeting will follow a loose format where MCT2D team members will guide the conversation and get your feedback. Lively and engaging conversation from all members is encouraged and all viewpoints are heard and respected.
Patient Advisors are asked to commit to at least a year (6 meetings) of membership, although we understand that unexpected circumstances can come up that may prevent you from continuing your participation.
Patient Advisors will be required to sign a Participant Agreement and Code of Conduct Policy. This will ensure that all members feel comfortable sharing their thoughts without judgment.
For your time and participation, you will be paid $25 via check for each session you attend.
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please email the
