Family and Community Health
A practical quarterly journal which aims to advance the science of health disparities and health equity focusing on families and communities. We recognize the lack of a singular definition of health disparities and health equity. For the purposes of this journal however, we utilize the definitions of health disparities and health equity offered in Healthy People 2020.
Family and Community Health publishes rigorous scholarly work from multiple disciplines using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods to highlight the full spectrum of family and community-focused research undertaken to reduce health disparities and to achieve health equity. Original theoretical, empirical and evidence-based articles, unsolicited state-of-the-science reviews, and solicited commentaries presenting innovative research about the relationship among families, communities, health disparities, and/or health equity.
