Dr. Turner

Dr. Turner first became interested in tropical diseases when he was in junior high school. As a medical student at UCLA, he worked with the faculty of the Division of Parasitology in the Department of Infectious Diseases. His summer parasitology research project in Guatemala was interrupted when he acquired paralytic poliomyelitis, an acute onset of paralysis.

After weeks in a Guatemalan hospital, he was transferred to the student health section of the UCLA Medical Center for rehabilitation. A year later, he joined the Class of 1958 for his senior year of medical school.

After an internal medicine internship at the UCLA Medical Center, Turner rejoined the Division of Parasitology as a faculty member and began his academic teaching career. He studied tropical medicine in Puerto Rico, Haiti, Mexico, South Africa, Kenya and Egypt. He also obtained a diploma in tropical medicine and hygiene from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Dr. Turner returned to clinical internal medicine by joining the residency program at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in 1964. He taught parasitology at UCLA until retirement, earning four "Golden Apple Teaching Awards" and an "Exceptional Quality Teaching Award" from the medical students. He also taught parasitology at the University of California, Irvine College of Medicine.

Dr. Turner served in several administrative roles at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Hes
