BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University has been asked by the Chinese government to help it implement new national guidelines requiring the country's 1.6 million schools to provide students with daily physical activity. The move is an attempt to reverse a burgeoning obesity problem in China.


The U.S.-China partnership could help 270 million Chinese school children have access to daily physical activity.
