The purpose of this study was to investigate factors associated with knowledge, overall and for sodium, of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) among Dietetic Interns in Southern California. Specifically, a survey assessed whether Interns’ knowledge is related to their self-efficacy related to applying the DGA, belief that the DGA is a trusted resource for nutritional advice, eating patterns, and sodium intake behaviors. The survey was created for this particular project and administered via Qualtrics online Software. Pearson correlations demonstrated that there were statistically significant, positive correlations between self-efficacy and knowledge of the DGA, overall and for sodium. These results suggest that Interns’ self-efficacy may be related to their knowledge of the DGA, overall and for sodium.
