“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.

I met our next guest, Tamika Felder, in 2007 when we were both being honored with the Women in Government Presidential Leadership Award, in recognition of efforts to raise awareness of and education about cervical cancer, and its prevention and early diagnosis in order to eliminate cervical cancer deaths in our lifetime. Tamika, herself a survivor of cervical cancer, created an empowering advocacy organization called Tamika & Friends, which has continued to do great work in education about cervical cancer. So of course, when I started this podcast, Tamika was high on my list of women I wanted to invite into the ladies room to share her story. I will let her tell it—but spoiler alert: she was diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 25. And like 257,524 women in the US, she is living beyond with cervical cancer.  But I will let her fill you in on all the rest of the details!
