Southeast Michigan Hospital Collaborative

Formed in 2017, the Southeast Michigan Hospital Collaborative (SEMI-HC) is an integrated, collaborative approach to reduce diabetes in the region. The SEMI-HC focuses on preventing diabetes through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), which supports those with prediabetes in making healthy lifestyle changes to reverse their prediabetes and prevent type 2 Diabetes. The Collaborative demonstrates that using a collective impact model is the best way to approach any problem or issue - GDAHC is well-versed in this area! The work of the Collaborative will initially focus on six Detroit-area zip codes. These zip codes were identified as being areas of critical need due to the level of inequities in health outcomes and the high occurrence of chronic disease.
