What is a Divabetic? A divabetic is a woman who embraces her inner diva and isnít afraid to show to the world she has diabetes.
Become a Diva. Define your Diabetes, Individualize it, and Voice it and Attain It.
Where can you learn to become a Divabetic? At a Divabetic event. When are Divabetic events held? You first have to go to Divabetic.org to find a Divabetic event near you.
A Divabetic event is four hours of glamour, education, elation and enlightenment. As a diabetic woman you will find other women going through the same problems and issues you face everyday. The only difference is after this event you will feel empowered to pursue any and all dreams you have.
Once you walk through the door you feel the high energy and highly focused event. You will find six stations to go to get information about your diabetes. Each station is staffed by a certified diabetes educator or CDE. There is hip and energetic music playing in the background as you go from station to station to station.
Along the way you can get glammed up by professional hair stylists and makeup artists and then get a glamour photo.
There are 6 amazing stations to get information on your diabetes. Tunnel of Love, Denials Not My Style, Glam More, Fear Less, Grab Green & Go, Twist & Shout and Sweet Inspirations.
Denials Not My Style-teaches you the ABCís of Diabetes. A1C, Cholesterol and blood pressure

During the event a fashion show takes place and break out sessions a la Oprah by your host, Max Szadek. Szadek was personal assistant to the late Luther VanDross and saw in person the damaging effects of diabetes. The saying goes you donít die from diabetes just the complications. Complications such as stroke, heart attack, renal failure, blindness and amputation.
