"Women who come to these events often share their personal struggles with diabetes and tell me they feel encouraged by the intimate conversations with diabetes educators and other women affected by diabetes at our event," said Max Szadek, caregiver and personal assistant to the late Luther Vandross and founder of DIVABETIC. "Every individual who leaves an event not only looking beautiful but feeling more confident about her diabetes care is a testament to the impact of Novo Nordisk Presents: DIVABETIC - Makeover Your Diabetes in building a community for people living with this challenging disease and driving them to make changes in their lives."

Nearly 21 million Americans have diabetes and 800,000 -- or one in eight - - of them live in New York City. Alarmingly, nearly 70 percent of all people diagnosed with diabetes in New York State are in poor control of their disease(1) -- putting themselves at risk of serious complications including blindness, cardiovascular disease and amputation.

Following the New York event, Novo Nordisk Presents: DIVABETIC-Makeover Your Diabetes will be offered in cities including:

Philadelphia, PA March 8

Atlanta, GA April 12

Los Angeles, CA June 28

Washington, DC September 27

Cleveland, OH October 11

New Orleans, LA November 8
