REFLECT, RELATE, RELEASE: "A journal for women with packed days, and restless nights", is for busy women who forget to reflect and unpack their day. Have you ever returned from a trip without taking the time to unpack? You move on to your daily tasks, with that "packed bag" on your mind. It may even fade away, until you remember that there are things you needed that went unused. They were still packed away. We unpack to put away, protect, wash, and toss, accordingly. We must do the same with our day's journey, as well. Often, we greet tomorrow, overloaded from yesterday. This reflective journal helps to unpack the day, noting the areas that need review and targeting--and, taking time to celebrate the wins.

In the United States, some populations suffer from far greater disparities in health than others. Those disparities are caused not only by fundamental differences in health status across segments of the population, but also because of inequities in factors that impact health status, so-called determinants of health. Only part of an individual's health status depends on his or her behavior and choice; community-wide problems like poverty, unemployment, poor education, inadequate housing, poor public transportation, interpersonal violence, and decaying neighborhoods also contribute to health inequities, as well as the historic and ongoing interplay of structures, policies, and norms that shape lives. When these factors are not optimal in a community, it does not mean they are intractable: such inequities can be mitigated by social policies that can shape health in powerful ways. Communities in Action: Pathways to Health Equity seeks to delineate the causes of and the solutions to health inequities in the United States. This report focuses on what communities can do to promote health equity, what actions are needed by the many and varied stakeholders that are part of communities or support them, as well as the root causes and structural barriers that need to be overcome.
