“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.

The April 2018 Forbes article headline was “A 32-Year-Old's Startup, Inspired By A Health Scare, Sells For $275 Million”. That got my attention. 

Surbhi Sarna was 13 and working on her homework when she felt such severe lower abdominal side pain in her side that she blacked out. Doctors told her that it was a large, complex ovarian cyst.  But without surgery they couldn’t be sure that it wasn’t cancer.  Being at an impressionable age, this experience stayed with her. . .and led her on a quest to detect ovarian cancer for other women.  While her FDA cleared device is not yet marketed. Boston Scientific is buying nVision for $150 million upfront and another $125 million to be paid as certain clinical and commercial milestones are hit over the next four years. Our guest today, Surbhi Sarna, who was on Forbes' 30 Under 30 In Healthcare list in 2014, will tell us the rest of the story.
