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. Since its inception, Divabetic has presented outreach programs in 20 major U.S. cities, reaching hundreds of thousands of women, their families and health care professionals.
Through the years, Divabetic has done an outstanding job of ‘passing the boa’ to raise awareness of diabetes in a fun, new way. Mr. Divabetic and his team have presented a dazzling array of programming to empower, encourage and inspire the divas and their families to stay healthy and upbeat about their daily self-care across the country.
Divabetic gained national and international attention with the success of its Divabetic – Makeover Your Diabetes outreach tour, presented in nine major US cities (New York, NY, Washington DC, Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA, New Orleans, LA, Cleveland, OH, Philadelphia, PA, Miami, FL, Detroit, MI). Divabetic worked with teams of local certified diabetes educators in each city and reached thousands of women across the country. The success of the tour now serves as a content platform for many of Divabetic’s live and online programs. Additionally, Divabetic has worked with local healthcare centers to present an upbeat and interactive form of wellness outreach programming in Hagerstown, MD, Nashville, TN, Stamford, CT, Memphis, TN, Knoxville, TN and Tampa, FL.
This year, Mr. Divabetic plans to travel to Washington, DC, Los Angeles, CA, Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY San Diego, CA, Pittsburgh, PA, Raleigh, NC and Austin, TX in support of Divabetic’s dazzling brand of diabetes health and wellness outreach.
