“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.

In this episode, Dr. Donnica will be talking with Denise Licata
and Hope Marmo (Known as “Laverne & Shirley”) of the AHRC Nassau (NY) about their ground-breaking “Dance Fit” class for individuals of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The impediments of intellectual and developmental disabilities not only stigmatize and isolate affected individuals, but also contribute to a sedentary lifestyle and comfort eating. These limitations fall to the wayside at the Tuesday night “Dance Fit” class the nurses teach. Between the twists, turns, and claps that get their endorphins pumping, participants are also making new friends. According to studies, obesity is 2-3 times greater among people with IDD. We’re going to talk with Denise & Hope about the step-by- step approach they use to get this too often overlooked and isolated population moving and socializing.
