“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.

Today’s guest is a visionary who’s pioneering invention launched a major industry & helped level the playing field in business & sports for millions of girls & women... including me and--if you’ve ever worn a sports bra--you too.

Her new book tells the amazing story behind the creation of the Jog bra, an entrepreneurial victory for which she will be inducted into The National Inventors Hall of Fame in May 2020. As an inventor, Lisa is not a one-hit-wonder. In addition to inventing the sports bra in 1977, she patented a medical garment for breast cancer survivors in 2000.
Unleash the Girls: The Untold Story of the Invention of the Sports Bra and How it Changed The World (and Me) takes us back to 1977 when women, whether they wanted to go to the gym, compete in sports, or jog had no protection against bouncing,
chafing, sweaty breasts. 

Lisa’s story takes us through the many challenges, ups and downs, and successes of launching a business by women for women in an era and an industry dominated by men.
What Lisa initially thought might be a small mail-order business took off like wildfire across the country. Her only formal business education was a one-year program at the Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School. 
In 1991, she joined the Board of Directors of the Epilepsy Foundation, becoming their first board member with Epilepsy.
Her book is the story of not just an invention used by millions of women and girls, but how it changed the world – and along the way, changed Lisa, too.
