Abstract: The purpose of this study was to plan and implement a program evaluation for the North Carolina Affiliate of the American Heart Association. A total design method mail survey was developed to collect demographic data on the survey respondents, summative data on an existing nutrition education curriculum, Culinary Hearts Kitchen, and formative data on a proposed nutrition education curriculum, "Takin' Care of Southern Hearts". The target population included 103 home economics extension agents employed by the Cooperative Extension Service in North Carolina and 1011 registered dietitians who were active members of the North Carolina Dietetic Association for a total of 1114 persons. The census survey attained an overall response rate of 71.6% (n=643).
