DivaTalkRadio is a service of Divabetic, a national health and wellness nonprofit, a forum for education, empowerment and encouragement for those living with, at risk of and affected by diabetes and a channel on a mission to glamorize good health. Hosted by the happiest health care "MC," Max “Mr. Divabetic” Szadek, DivaTalkRadio will change attitudes, boost spirits, encourage hope and motivate others to stay healthy with a feather boa, a smile and fabulous sense of style! DivaTalkRadio is the epicenter of the circle of care, a link between patients and their health care providers, a translator of clinical speak and a bridge between denial and acceptance, fear and confidence. Divabetic was inspired by the late music legend, Luther Vandross and created in 2005 by Max Szadek, who, as Vandross’ assistant of 14 years, witnessed his boss, mentor, and friend struggle in silence and solitude with the diabetes and its related complications. President Barak Obama, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter have acknowledged Divabetic for its dedication and determination on behalf of the diabetes community. Through education, support and a Glam More, Fear Less philosophy, Divabetic encourages a predominately-female entourage to become wellness and health ambassadors to their families and their communities.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight we're talking about overeating, binge eating and food addiction on Diabetes Late Nite with musical inspiration from Kelly Clarkson. Earlier this year, Kelly Clarkson faced some serious criticism for her fluctuating weight after giving birth to her first child, River Rose. British journalist Katie Hopkins said, ?That's not baby weight. That's carrot cake.? The journalist went on to say, ?She does look like she's eaten her backup singers.? Kelly Clarkson responded,?It doesn't bother me. It's a free world. Say what you will. I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good, that's been my thing. And more so now, since having a family — I don't seek out any other acceptance.? Guests include the Charlie's Angels of Outreach (Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE) Poet Lorraine Brooks and Mama Rose Marie. Special guests: Dr. Chris Hardy (Author of "DO's 8 - Step Program to Fight Against Diabesity"), Dr. Lori Shemek PhD, Megrette Fletcher Med, RD, CDEand Linda from Rochester, NY. Throughout the podcast we will be playing selected cuts from Kelly Clarkson's latest album, ?Piece By Piece? courtesy of SONY Music.
