Divabetic’s national diabetes educational outreach program, ‘Divabetic – Makeover Your Diabetes’, mixes free beauty and fashion services and music with interactive diabetes education in a fun, comfortable setting to broaden the appeal of diabetes educational outreach for women. Our goal is to make every woman feel more beautiful inside and out through the help of a team of certified diabetes educators, registered dietitians, and beauty and fashion experts.
The free event hosted by the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic offers both educational resources for caring for diabetes — including lots of opportunities to talk with certified diabetes educators and health professionals — as well as salon services such as makeup application by professional makeup artists and advice on choosing flattering dress styles.
According to recent reports, diabetes is a serious public health issue affecting an estimated 11 million women. Because of the increasing lifespan of women and the rapid growth of minority populations – among whom diabetes prevalence is two to four times higher than among white women – the number of women in the United States at high risk for diabetes and its complications is increasing.
Divabetic, a national nonprofit organization, is on a mission to promote better outcomes for women with diabetes or those at risk using our time-tested approach by appealing to women’s desire for attractiveness. Over the past seven years, our approach of glamorizing good health has received rave reviews.
Divabetic was inspired by the late music legend, Luther Vandross and created in 2005 by Max ‘Mr. Divabetic’ 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
