“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.

In the ladies’ room today, we have US Congressional Candidate, Cathy Kunkel, who is running as a Democrat in West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. Cathy has defended West Virginians against monopoly electric utilities, analyzed the economic and financial impact of natural gas drilling and pipelines in the region, researched absentee land ownership in West Virginia, and fought electric utility corporate bailouts. She’s is the co-founder of Advocates for a Safe Water System in the aftermath of the January 2014 Freedom Industries chemical spill. She is the co-founder of Rise Up WV, an organization that advocates for healthcare for quality public education, better services for those suffering from addiction, and many other issues we’ve discussed on this podcast.


Cathy discusses her stance on healthcare. Specifically, in West Virginia, the coal industry that is now leaving and shrinking because of financial and environmental reasons has left a lot of former coal workers with black lung disease. Even though, many coal workers are entitled to help from getting this disease at work. they are struggling to fight big lawyers working against them. Now that many West Virginians have lost their coal mining jobs, they are being left without health insurance. She goes through her plans for helping the environment and health insurance if elected to Congress.
