“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.

More & more women are clinging to higher & higher heels, often at great risk to their leg & foot health.  Ironically, women seem
to care more about how their legs & feet look rather than how they feel or how healthy they are.  More ironically:  in the discussion of the costs of health care, foot problems are a glaringly obviously example of how a little prevention goes a long way. 

Not only are sneakers are more comfortable than heels, but they’re safer & healthier. Today, we’re going to talk with Dr. Nancy Yen Shipley, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, about The Hazards of Heels. She is fellowship-trained in sports medicine and arthroscopy of the shoulder and knee. She is also a team physician for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team. She is one of only 6.5% of orthopedic surgeons in the US who are women.

Dr. Yen Shipley is passionate about caring for her patients as well as blogging about her path to a medical career, and bone and joint issues. As a mother and a surgeon, she is a mentor and champion for women and diversity in surgical specialties, and brings awareness to this through speaking engagements and an active online presence.
