Merit-Based Award Bestowed Upon Dr. Turek for the Second Consecutive Year
Beverly Hills, CA – June 30, 2017—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 the year by Healthline, for the second consecutive year.
According to Healthline’s Anna Schaefer, Dr. Turek’s blog ranks among The Best Men’s Health Blogs of the Year after independent editorial review. Schaefer writes that Healthline’s picks, “…set great examples for how to champion your own health and wellness and make healthier decisions in all aspects of your life.”
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.
In their ‘best blogs’ announcement, Healthline said of his writing, “…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’s 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.
