Celebrating 13 years of podcasting, DivaTalkRadio is a service of Divabetic (Divabetic.org), 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 a fabulous sense of style! DivaTalkRadio is the epicenter of the circle of care, a link between patients and their healthcare 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 diabetes and its related complications. President Barack 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.
