Terry Turner Senior Content Writer

Terry Turner is a senior writer at Drugwatch focused on providing consumers and patients with the comprehensive information they need when facing some of the most important questions about their health and their lives.

As American health care is increasingly shaped by a handful of large pharmaceutical, medical device and insurance corporations, Terry believes citizen-driven safeguards become more important for each of us. He has written about too many cases of companies putting profits above patients.

Terry believes consumers should be better informed about the risks they face and the steps they can take to hold corporations accountable when those companies harm patients.

As an Emmy-winning journalist with more than 25 years of experience spanning radio, television, print and digital media, Terry has spent his career keeping people informed about complex issues that directly affect them.

Early in his journalism career, Terry exposed a gap in Arkansas law that allowed teens to easily produce cheap, potent methamphetamine. His reporting was credited with spurring new state pharmacy guidelines to close the loophole.

As an investigative reporter, Terry covered Congress, the White House and federal agencies for more than 100 television news departments across the U.S. His “Washington Watchdog” reports included stories about federal overspending on dialysis drugs, lax enforcement of laws against medical experiments on humans and a change in federal law that cut off health insurance for 8 million children.

Terry received his bachelor’s degree in Media Arts from Lyon College.
