Award reflects Dr. Turek’s commitment to providing the highest quality men’s health information available
Los Angeles, CA – December 20, 2016 – Dr. Paul Turek, Director of The Turek Clinics in Beverly Hills and San Francisco, has been named one of the top men’s health bloggers of 2016.
Dr. Turek was one of only 10 recipients, selected by Healthline for, “actively working to educate, inspire, and empower their readers with frequent updates and high-quality information.”
Dr. Turek’s first blog post was published on February 28, 2009 and highlighted a question he would come back again and again in his research and in clinic practice: Is infertility a biomarker of a man’s present and future health, including diseases like cancer? “It’s an idea that has grown and matured since then to the point now that federal grants are available to study the problem,” says Dr. Turek.
According to Maegan Jones, Content Coordinator at Healthline, Dr. Turek’s blog was selected after independent review: “Our editorial staff scourers the internet for sites within a health category and then chooses the best based on a set of criteria.”
In their best blog announcement, Healthline pointed to the fact that, “we love how Dr. Turek breaks down complicated subjects for both men and their doctors.” When asked how he felt about breaking ground in the blogging world, Dr. Turek, a former professor who has received international acclaim for his teaching and research, stated, “I’m speechless. I just love to write and teach. It warms my heart to know that so many are interested in learning about men’s health issues.”
Dr. Turek blogs are published every Monday and cover a wide variety of topics, including male fertility and infertility, contraception sexual health and hormones, and lifestyle and longevity. His website is certified by independent third-party HONcode—a non-profit, non-governmental organization, accredited by the United Nations—as a source of reliable, ethical health information.
