Great Plains Diabetes Research, Inc is a not-for-profit organization that was started in 1982 by Richard A. Guthrie, MD, Endocrinologist, Joseph W. Hume, MD, Obstetrician/Gynecologist and Leslie W. Nesmith, MD, Retinologist.
The mission of Great Plains Diabetes is to provide innovative care and resources for our communities, families, and individuals affected by diabetes.
We provide clinical care and education to patients and families of all ages, participate in innovative research, provided telehealth services with Vigilias across the state and provide public and professional education.
We accept most insurances for our clinical services as well as self-pay. As a non-profit we accept donations to allow us to provide services to all individuals with diabetes.
