The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic and his guests are talking about “STAGES” with inspiration from The Sapphires.

If William Shakespeare is correct in proclaiming that “all the world’s a stage” then what kind of show are you starring in? Is it a musical comedy like the 2012 Australian film, the Sapphires? And if so, are you happy with your 'current' stage of life and health?

Some people claim that infancy is the key stage of life (!) because a baby’s brain is wide open to new experiences that will influence all the rest of its later life. Others argue that it’s adolescence or young adulthood, when physical health is at its peak. Many cultures around the world value late adulthood more than any other, arguing that it is at this stage that the human being has finally acquired the wisdom necessary to guide others. Who is right? The truth of the matter is that every stage of life is equally significant especially if you’re living with diabetes.

Let Mr. Divabetic and the Diabetes Late Nite team (Poet Lorraine Brooks, Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, Neva White MSN, CRNP, CDE, Mary Ann Horst-Nicolay  BA, DTR and Mama Rose Marie Szadek) help inspire you to stage a comeback. Join us along with special guests, author Kim Strandridge Boykin and DJ-turned-comedian Tom Ragú as we shine the spotlight on living well with diabetes with inspiration from the Sapphires.

The Sapphires is a film about four indigenous women who are discovered by a talent scout and form a music group called The Sapphires, traveling to Vietnam in 1968 to sing for troops during the war. We will be playing music from The Sapphires soundtrack throughout the podcast courtesy of SONY Music.

Diabetes Late Nite is a fast-paced, full-filled hour of diabetes education and wellness advice that encourages listeners to “laugh a little, learn a lot.”
