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.

Will ‘Orange' be the new black for Mr. Divabetic? When a murder takes place in the Divabetic studios the primary suspect becomes the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic. Our fruit suit clad amateur sleuth sets out to prove his innocence with the help of USA Today Best-Selling Author, Tonya Kappes. As they try to solve the crime, Mr. Divabetic and the Diabetes Late Nite cast discover the harmful side effects of dietary supplements for people with diabetes. If you are not cautious, diabetes and dietary supplements can be a dangerous mix. Some supplements have been found to be contaminated with substances other than those stated on the label. Others should be avoided with certain medications. The first step in deciding whether or not to mix diabetes and dietary supplements is to talk to your doctor. He or she can discuss the possible benefits and risks of dietary supplements. Guests include Best-Selling Author Tonya Kappes, the Charlie's Angels of Outreach (Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, Neva White MSN, CRNP, CDE) Poet Lorraine Brooks, Jennifer Martsloff from Trigg Laboratories, Author Peter Arpesella and Mama Rose Marie. Tonya Kappes has written over 15 novels and 4 novellas, all of which have graced numerous bestseller lists including USA Today. Best known for stories charged with emotion and humor, and filled with flawed characters, her novels have garnered reader praise and glowing critical reviews. The Pink Panther Theme by Henry Mancini courtesy of SONY Music.
