Did you know that there are currently over 17 million adults and 7 million children in the U.S. who suffer from asthma?
This month, The Will Rogers Institute, the nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting medical research and educating the general public on topics of health and fitness, is sharing an exclusive PSA with us.
It’s startling to know that asthma has been identified as one of the country’s most common and costly illnesses. Because of this fact, we must do everything we can to educate and discuss this condition and help change future statistics.
WRI has released a new PSA campaign that highlights the danger signs and health risks associated with asthma, starring Emmy award winning actor Bryan Cranston, best known for his starring role in the AMC drama series Breaking Bad.

This month, with the help of Cranston, WRI is getting out there to educate on the simple signs of asthma.
Here is what to look out for:
- Difficulty breathing
- Shortness of breath
Take notice of these signs and symptoms and determine whether it’s appropriate to talk to your doctor about asthma. Together, by educating, we can really make a difference.
Please continue getting the word out about this PSA campaign throughout the month of October by sharing with your friends, Facebook pages and Twitter followers.
