Patient Advisory Board Recruitment Handout (Provider)


Updated: 10/16/23

MCT2D formed the Patient Advisory Board to put patient voices front and center in this important work. Members of the patient advisory board support our collaborative and providers by guiding the development of new projects, reviewing patient facing materials, brainstorming ideas for new tools and resources, providing stories and context to regional and collaborative wide meetings, and by generally ensuring that the collaborative continues to serve the best interest of patients. 
We are committed to building a diverse group of patients and caregivers from historically marginalized communities, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, those who are medically-underserved, and/or who have faced challenges in the health care system are strongly welcomed. We are committed to providing accommodations for sensory disabilities and non-native English speakers. 
MCT2D understands that everyone’s time is valuable and compensates advisors $25 an hour for meeting attendance. Qualities of a Patient or Caregiver Advisor
