Objective: To identify regional, organizational, and personal characteristics that predict awareness and adoption of a dietary curriculum training and CD among educators. Methods: A cross-sectional study of educators (n=675) representing 48 states report program awareness and factors that influenced adoption. Results: Among those surveyed, 354 educators were aware (52%) of the CD and 192 educators adopted it (54%). Adopters were nearly 8 times more likely to identify training time and nearly 7 times more likely to identify CD training method as influencing adoption. Conclusion: Although regional and organizational characteristics are predictors of awareness, these variables were less likely to predict adoption of such programs.
