Kids Need More Exercise

Hosted by

State law requires that high school and junior-high students get 400 minutes of physical education every ten days. But UCLA's Center for Health Policy Research found that 1.3 million kids are avoiding PE. That’s 38 percent of students between the ages of 12 and 17.  Dr. Allison Diamant is faculty associate at the Center and a co-author of the study.
