Asthma is one of the most prevalent conditions, affecting almost 340 million individuals across the globe and approximately 25 million Americans, or 7.8% of the US population. Treatment is complex and goals of therapy are elusive for many. Anxiety and other concerns are common in those diagnosed with asthma and can worsen outcomes.
