And that’s the way it is: Legendary Newsman Walter Cronkite is “gravely ill”

TV broadcasting icon Walter Cronkite, 92, is reported to be “gravely ill” but no other information about his condition is available at this time.

Mark Boguski, M.D., Ph.D. is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and is a member of the Society for Participatory Medicine, "a movement in which networked patients shift from being mere passengers to responsible drivers of their health" and in which professional health care providers encourage "empowered patients" and value them as full partners in managing their health and wellness.
