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

The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic wants to help empower you to manage your diabetes with confidence, knowledge and inspiration from Miranda Lambert. Miranda Lambert is one of the biggest names in the industry, but she knows she isn't perfect. The multi-time Female Vocalist of the Year winner says not winning ‘Nashville Star' in 2003 was the best thing that could have happened. It gave her time to mature as an artist, and to write and record songs that she believed in. One of Miranda's favorite lyrics on her fifth studio album titled ?Platinum? is ‘imagine a fighter with a centerfold face.? Miranda says, ?that's how I picture all of my friends. They're strong — and gorgeous. They make me proud.? Miranda Lambert and her album, Platinum are inspiring us to talk about the high cost of living with diabetes. "When you're in the industry and you hear 'platinum' you think platinum album, says Miranda. ?But platinum is a lot of things: it's hair, it's diamonds and platinum, it's Bud Light Platinum, it's the color of an Airstream.? Diabetes Late Nite guests include Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, Dr. Beverly S. Adler PhD, CDE, Neva White DNP, CRNP, CDE, Poet Lorraine Brooks, Author Kim Boykin and Mama Rose Marie. We're playing selected songs from Miranda Lambert's new album, ?Platinum? courtesy of SONY MUSIC. Join Divabetic's growing community on Facebook. GLAM MORE, FEAR LESS!
