Terry Turner is an Emmy-winning former television journalist with more than 30 years of experience. Prior to joining Consumernotice.org, he researched and wrote about dangerous drugs and faulty medical devices and the government policies that allowed them to reach and hurt consumers.

He was selected as a MarCom Awards platinum winner for his expose of how Juul used tobacco industry documents as a guide in marketing vaping products to teen consumers and a Digital Health Awards Silver Winner for his report on the overprescribing, marketing and overuse of dangerous heartburn medicines.
