    "Real good could come of this,” the former Today anchor says of the medical crowdsourcing show. “We aim to help break down the walls that still stop people from accessing the medical information they need. Harnessing the full power of both television and technology to connect people interactively with doctors all over the world is a step toward a future when we are not limited by where we live or whether we can find the right doctor. This is a new way of doing things, a new genre of broadcasting and a chance to help people.”
