On some social media platforms, falsehoods are 70% more likely to be shared than facts. To support people seeking credible health information online, we created over 120 videos covering the most commonly searched health conditions in both English and Spanish. All videos can be found on our YouTube channel.

We created these videos with Stanford Medicine experts and cover topics across mental health, cancer, HIV / AIDS, substance abuse, and more. The online format has proven to be a good option for spreading information about stigmatized topics, which people are less comfortable asking in person or going to family and friends for advice about.

In today's online landscape, where misinformation runs rampant, resources like these allow people to make informed decisions about their well-being.

“I see patients all the time with concerns that could have been avoided altogether with improved knowledge about how to be and stay healthy, or that could have been mitigated if the patient better understood their medical condition."

- Dr. Moises Gallegos, Stanford Emergency Medicine
