Meet Richard M. Bergenstal, MD
I am a research clinician at International Diabetes Center (IDC). I work with patients participating in research studies related to type 1 and type 2 diabetes and new diabetes technology. For more information about the many studies offered through IDC, please call 952-993-3500. Being involved in diabetes research can help individuals better manage their diabetes or may help the next generation of people with diabetes. As Executive Director of the IDC, I also participate in training professionals in the US and internationally and publishing diabetes educational materials for patients and professionals.
Translating new research findings into improvements in diabetes care is my major professional focus. We are finding that the best approach to improve care is by working as a team and to focus on the needs of each patient. My outreach diabetes clinic in Willmar Minnesota keeps me in clinical practice. My two granddaughters keep me active, amazed and inspired.
