ABSTRACT
The purpose of the study was to assess levels of cultural competency among health educators. Four hundred and fifty-five participants completed the Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence-Revised. Results of the study showed that most participants were operating at a level of cultural awareness. Degree in health education, levels of exposure to diverse groups, health education settings, and the number of cultural education programs participants ' attended were associated with their level of cultural competence. Findings from this survey support the need for more research in this area to develop discipline-specific guidelines for cultural competency among health educators.
