Tonight we’re encouraging you to ‘LOVE YOURSELF, LOVE YOUR DIABETES HEALTH!’ with musical inspiration from George Michael. George was one of the leading pop stars of the 1980s and ’90s. His 1987 album ‘Faith’ won a Grammy for best album of the year.
February has long been celebrated as a month of romance. When we think about love, we generally think in terms of who loves us and whom we love, both of which refer to others. But what if Valentine’s Day were really about falling in love with ourselves, cherishing ourselves, and honoring our health.
So many of us are programmed to constantly be taking care of others. We say there isn’t enough time to concentrate on ourselves or we think that it would just be an unnecessary indulgence. However, the truth is making yourself and your diabetes health a priority in your life is much more than just a great way of life, it’s also a smart way to avoid a diabetes health-related complication.
We’re throwing our first-ever Divabetic Valentine’s Day Party! We’re sharing expert advice on food to nourish your heart, fashions to boost your spirit and fabulous diabetes self-care tips to make your life easier. Whether you’re married, single or dating, our goal is to encourage you to show how much you care about yourself and your diabetes health.
Guests including Chef Ward Alper aka ‘The Decadent Diabetic, ‘Rich In Love’ style blogger, Vintage fashionista, model and diabetes advocate, Doris Hobbs, the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach, Poet Lorraine Brooks and Laura Laria, MA, CASAC-T, Addiction Counselor and Developer of t’he Well Armed Diabetic’.
Throughout the podcast we will be featuring music by George Michael courtesy of SONY Music. This podcast supports the ‘Spare A Rose, Save A Child’ campaign and is part of #DPodcastWeek.
Diabetes Late Nite is a fast-paced, full-filled hour of diabetes education and wellness advice that encourages listeners to “laugh a little, learn a lot.”
About Mr. Divabetic
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.
