“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. Dani Jackson is a first-generation college student finishing her final year of residency at the Yale Department of Psychiatry. Now she is working to address healthcare inequity and social justice of the unmet health needs of the black community due to systemic racism and structural vulnerability. She is the co-director of the Social Justice and Health Equity Curriculum for the Department of Psychiatry at Yale. She is also a recipient of the National Medical Association’s Top Health Care Providers Under 40 Award for 2020.


She enters the ladies’ room to talk about being a little girl who loved to learn and want to learn more about diseased directly affecting her family. This prompted her to go to medical school. Dani and Donnica talk about racial inequality in the health care system and also in medical school. Many people can go through elementary school, high school, and even into college without a black teacher. Even more never see a black doctor. The more representation there is in healthcare, the more people there are on the side of fighting racial inequity. Someone’s zip code should not dictate their life expectancy.
