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

August's Diabetes Late Nite podcast is inspired by Sia. Sia is helping Mr. Divabetic to shed some light on the emotional side of diabetes including depression. If you have diabetes — either type 1 or type 2 — you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other. Sia has made evoking viewers' raw emotions from her videos into a habit. Her usage of Maddie Ziegler with wild choreography coupled with the black background, really emphasize the hurt and longing heard in Sia's voice. She's also the voice behind hit songs like ‘Chandelier' and 'Diamonds' but the Grammy-nominated artist might be best known for not showing her face at public events. ?If anyone besides famous people knew what it was like to be a famous person, they would never want to be famous,? Sia wrote. ??I don't want to be famous, or recognizable. I've been writing pop songs for pop stars now for a couple of years and I've become friends with them and see what their life is like and that's not something I want.? Sia's got incredible talent that definitely does not go unnoticed. Throughout the podcast will be playing selected cuts from Sia's album ?1000 Forms of Fear? courtesy of SONY Music. Guests include Dr. Beverly S. Adler PhD, CDE, Poet Lorraine Brooks, the Charlie's Angels of Outreach, Mama Rose Marie and Zippora Karz, a former NYC ballet ballerina with type 1 diabetes and author of the memoir "The Sugarless Plum".
