In addition, they now consume more video content than ever. For instance, when they experience coughs or colds, they look for video tutorials that teach home remedies. This made YouTube even more popular than it already is.
There Are Many YouTube Myths In The Healthcare Space

Dr. Garth Graham will lead this new effort. His team will show YouTube users easy-to-understand medical information from some of the most respected clinicians and organizations in the healthcare industry.
Besides, the team will bring higher quality content from authoritative and evidence-based sources. This way, such content will be front and center on YouTube.
More About Dr. Garth Graham
According to Dr. Graham, he saw the importance of health and access to health information firsthand while growing up. His parents emigrated from Jamaica to the US. The reason is that her mother was given a job as a nurse in Miami, Florida. After moving to the US, her mother would leave each and every day for the hospitals to treat her patients selflessly.
But Dr. Graham’s mother did more than just treating patients. Instead, she fostered community with them. She equipped her patients with the information that they needed to understand their health conditions. In addition, she encouraged them with helpful ways of improving their health.
Dr. Graham’s admiration for the work that her mother did and how she impacted people’s lives have become a huge part of his decision to become a doctor.
For the past two decades, Dr. Graham has worked in many healthcare areas. He is a cardiologist who treats patients and a researcher who educates people. Also, he is a member of the health policy community that advocated for improved healthcare.
Before he joined YouTube, he was a Chief Community Health Officer at CSV Health. He was also a Deputy Assistant Secretary at the US Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, he has been the President of the Aetna Foundation and the Assistant Dean for Health Policy. In the Department of Medicine at the University of Florida School of Medicine. In the same department in that university, he was the Chief of Health Services Research.
Taking all of these past positions into consideration, some may say that coming to YouTube is an outlier for his resume. However, he still feels excited to bring all the facets of all his experiences together. This will serve as a bridge for people between the clinical world and YouTube.
How Dr. Graham Perceives the Evolution of Health Education Through Digital Video
As clinicians, Dr. Graham and his colleagues are always looking for various ways to move forward inpatient care. Also, they are constantly aiming to stay current when it comes to how the world is changing.
Dr. Graham advised people not to let outdated pagers fool them. Those who want to be at the forefront of change in health should know the importance of YouTube in the digital revolution. The reason is that almost everyone around the world is always on their mobile phones, consuming videos. More specifically, most people are watching videos related to health information from YouTube and the internet.
The Mission of Dr. Graham and His Team On YouTube
Dr. Graham noted that he and his team’s mission is to empower people to live their healthiest lives using knowledge, inspiration, and support. They want to ensure that everyone will be able to access credible and evidence-based information from trustworthy sources. Like we mentioned earlier, buying YouTube views is one of many myths that still linger.
However, the information that people can access in the digital space is so vast. For this reason, it isn’t easy to find out which information is trustworthy. It is also hard to find information sources that make complex medical jargon more accessible and easier to understand.
Now that the world is facing one of its most challenging public health crises, people must access objective and evidence-based information. This will help them make healthy decisions. This is the reason why Dr. Graham and his team are excited to work with YouTube on innovative tactics that will ensure trustworthy scientific information is more broadly accessible, engaging, as well as actionable.

The team is now working hard to surface medical information that is easy to understand. This is the information that came from the most respected clinicians and organizations in healthcare.
Some of the team’s newest collaborators include the Cleveland Clinic, American Public Health Association, Harvard School of Public Health, Osmosis, Mayo Clinic, Psych Hub, and the National Academy of Medicine.
The aforementioned organizations are creating high-quality health content for viewers all around the globe. Besides, healthcare professionals are a major part of the vision for health on YouTube.
