Divabetic is a national nonprofit organization inspired by the late R&B legend Luther Vandross and women living with, at risk of and affected by diabetes. Divabetic presents wellness with a wow through highly engaged, non-traditional events, programs and online content to promote prevention, early action and education.
Max Szadek started the organization in 2005 shortly after diabetes-related complications claimed the life of his friend and boss, Luther Vandross. Szadek worked for Vandross for nearly 14 years and witnessed Luther’s diabetes-related ups, downs and everything in between. With the encouragement of Vandross’ mother, Szadek embarked upon a mission to glamorize good health.
Many in the diabetes community know Szadek as Mr. Divabetic, the Happy Healthcare Host, and applaud his entertaining brand of diabetes outreach.
