Thank you, Alfonso, that's excellent feedback. It's always important to consider severe time constraints when thinking about the day-to-day experience of low-income individuals, in particular.

I love that you emphasize the importance of differential value/knowledge/communication systems from culture to culture.

I once had a literature professor who liked to tell us: "I don't want you to tell me *what* it means. I want you tell me *how* it means." I think that understanding *how* specific cultures/populations create and pass down meaning from generation to generation is a necessary condition of designing ways to improve children's health.

Andrew commented on Trusted Social Capital

Inadequate transportation and excessive time spent commuting are *major* contributors to the burden of low-income populations, and they are so often overlooked. Great comment.
