YOU Docs Michael Roizen, MD, and Mehmet Oz, MD, Launch Daily Syndicated

Newspaper Column

SAN DIEGO and NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Motivation tank running on E? Who better to keep the health momentum going than the YOU Docs, Michael Roizen, MD, cofounder of the RealAge program, and Mehmet Oz, MD, health expert for The Oprah Winfrey Show. King Features Syndicate and RealAge.com announce the launch of a daily newspaper column by the physician-authors. With doses of daily tips, Q&As, and newsworthy features, these top docs offer up the best in health and wellness advice in their new editorial package.

"We are excited about moving into the print medium on a daily basis," said Dr. Roizen. "With the ease and convenience of implementing our tips in the new column, we hope to continue the YOU passion to motivate people to take control of their health. To do that, you must understand your body at least as well as your cell-phone plan or your car."

The daily newspaper column launched in 50 North American newspapers on May 4, 2008. Initial newspaper clients include Chicago Sun-Times, Knoxville News-Sentinel, Portland Oregonian, Tampa Tribune, Sarasota Herald Tribune, Las Vegas Review-Journal, Charleston Post & Courier, as well as the Toronto Star and Calgary Herald in Canada. The YOU Docs, as the column is titled, includes weekday health tips and practical advice ranging from how much folate is in spinach to when sunlight can actually be good for you; a Q&A section on Saturdays, featuring answers to readers' pressing health questions; and, on Sundays, a medical feature based on new scientific studies.

The daily column will also be available at RealAge.com, the online home of the YOU Docs. And one column a week will be delivered as a podcast as well.

"The YOU Docs are known for their ability to give expert and entertaining advice as public health educators, and have established a reputation for guiding readers through the complexities of medicine, health and diet," said Glenn Mott, managing editor of King Features Syndicate. "With the addition of a syndicated column to their outreach, which currently includes the health site RealAge.com, best-selling books, and TV and radio broadcasts, the Docs will greatly expand the availability of health news and advice to readers worldwide."

Drs. Roizen and Oz are pioneers in motivating people to take control of their health. Their first best-seller, YOU: The Owner's Manual, held the #1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list for 7 weeks. An updated and expanded edition of YOU: On a Diet, their second New York Times #1 blockbuster hit -- which was the fastest selling book in Free Press history -- was followed by their most recent #1 hit, YOU: Staying Young. The docs are the experts behind RealAge.com, home to the RealAge Test, which has been taken by more than 20 million people. Roizen and Oz also make frequent appearances in the media, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, PBS, Good Morning America, CBN 700 Club, and The View. Together, the YOU Docs also do a daily radio show on O and Friends on XM Radio. The addition of a newspaper column will greatly expand the reach of their health news and advice.
