Dr. Oz hails Turkish heritage in parade

American television personality Mehmet Oz, popularly known as Dr. Oz, attended a Turkish parade in Brooklyn, New York, on June 9 to celebrate his Turkish heritage.

“I’m proud to speak at the Turkish-American Parade in Brooklyn. I love any excuse to celebrate the culture’s focus on community and family,” said Oz on Twitter.

He also addressed participants in a speech during the event and stressed the importance Turkey plays as a bridge between the east and the west.

“The parade is also a great reminder of how Turkey bridges the east to the west and helps all of us understand that we are interconnected,” Oz said.

Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gul also attended the parade.

Turks showed great interest in Oz and snapped pictures with the world-famous surgeon.

Oz was born in Cleveland, Ohio to a Turkish father and American mother.
