Stanford Medicine partners on YouTube Moderator launch

Today Google integrated Moderator on YouTube, which lets users conduct group discussions on the video-sharing platform. Stanford University, and the School of Medicine, partnered with Google for the launch. We're hosting a Moderator series titled "Ask a Stanford Cardiologist: Taking Genetic Clues to Heart" on the Stanford YouTube channel, and we're inviting users to ask cardiologist Euan Ashley, MD, questions about genetics, heart disease and how gene sequencing may one day guide clinical treatments.

Ashley is an expert in the field. In April, he was part of a team that, for the first time ever, used a healthy person's complete genome sequence to analyze the patient's risk for dozens of diseases and his potential response to several common medications. Ashley is also an expert on a condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of sudden death in athletes.

So, if you've got a question for Ashley, we encourage you to head over to Stanford on YouTube and join the conversation.
