Emmy® Award Winning Actor Bryan Cranston Hosts Will Rogers Institute's PSA Campaign on the Warning Signs and Symptoms of Asthma

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - The Will Rogers Institute has released a new PSA campaign that highlights the danger signs and health risks associated with asthma. The campaign, featuring Emmy® award winning actor Bryan Cranston, informs viewers on how asthma can affect almost every area of your life, and the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment.

There are currently over 17 million adults and 7 million children in the U.S. who suffer from asthma, and the disease has been identified as one of the country's most common and costly illnesses. Asthma is a chronic pulmonary condition in which the airways become blocked or narrowed when stimulated by allergens or other environmental triggers. Patients with asthma often experience difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath.
