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 the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic hopes to encourage you to not let diabetes dim your holiday spirit with musical inspiration from Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey's ?Merry Christmas? album is the best selling Christmas album of all-time. ?Merry Christmas? boasts a variety of musical arrangements, sounds and genres. Mariah Carey's goal during recording was to provide an album that would have a "Christmas feel", providing a mixture of soulful tracks, as well as fun and joyous holiday treats. In the years since its original release, "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has become established as a Christmas standard; it was once called "one of the few worthy modern additions to the holiday canon. Having diabetes shouldn't stop you from enjoying holiday celebrations and travel. With some planning and a little preparation, you can stay healthy on the road and at holiday gatherings with friends and family. Preparation is the most important step in managing diabetes during holiday travel and festivities. Know what you'll be eating, how to enjoy a few traditional favorites while sticking with a healthy meal plan, how to pack necessary supplies for a trip, and you're ready to celebrate! Guests include Poet Lorraine Brooks, the Charlie's Angels of Outreach, ‘Unleash Your Inner Diabetes Dominator' Author Daniele Hargenrader, CEO of Insulcloud Jose Luis and Mama Rose Marie. Throughout the podcast we will be playing musical selections from Mariah Carey's ?Merry Christmas? album courtesy of SONY Music.
