“In the Ladies’ Room with Dr. Donnica” is the only public ladies' room you can enter any time without ever waiting on line! Hosted by women’s health expert and media commentator Donnica Moore MD, the podcast will feature real conversations, with real women, about really intimate issues. They may be embarrassing, sad or funny, but they will always be
interesting & informative. You know, like the best conversations you've ever had in ladies' rooms with your best friends. . .or total strangers. . .and a physician!

With a wide variety of guests with “been there, done that” expertise, Dr. Donnica discusses the health and wellness topics women often talk with her about in the ladies’ room. . . after speaking engagements, media
briefings, at events, or just because they happen to be chatting anonymously while waiting on line or over the sink. Generally, these topics tend to be things that are embarrassing; issues Dr. Donnica calls “the Toilet Talk topics” (anything related to bowel or bladder issues, gas, bodily functions, periods, discharges, etc.); questions related to sex and intimacy; subjects women are uncomfortable discussing in public or in “mixed company”; challenges women are struggling with; or anything top of mind or in the news. In each topic, we add our Top Tips about that topic as well as a call to action.

Dr. Beverly Zavaleta is a board-certified family physician, author, mother, and long-time advocate of patient education. She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School, and she now works as a hospitalist in Texas. In 2015, she was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, and she underwent grueling chemotherapy, which led to her writing her book Braving Chemo. She talks about her journey with breast cancer. When she first got her diagnosis, she was shocked and started building her support team. Beverly and Donnica break down the different vocabulary used with cancer to make your diagnosis easier to understand. The entire experience inspired Beverly to take action and write her book. She felt that she had to share her experience both medically and emotionally to help others in their cancer journeys.
