Support Divabetic’s dazzling brand of diabetes outreach. Help us continue to present health and wellness education with pop culture pizazz! From our free monthly podcasts to our free diabetes stage shows, Divabetic strives to empower men and women to manage their diabetes with confidence, inspiration and knowledge.
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. Divabetic has grown from a grassroots movement to help empower Luther fans affected by diabetes to a burgeoning and significant presence in the diabetes social media community. President Barak Obama, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter have acknowledged Divabetic for it’s dedication and determination on behalf of the diabetes community.
Mr. Divabetic rolls out the red tomato carpet at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Along the parade route Mr. Divabetic plays his food game, Serve, Taste or Trash! with New Yorkers to hilarious results. In the game, you’re given three choices of fruits and vegetables. You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
