The purpose of this study was to understand recommendations of key stakeholders regarding cultural adaptation of an evidence-based nutrition and physical activity education curriculum for Spanish-speaking adults. Findings from focus groups with Spanish-speaking adults (n=43) and telephone interviews with experts in Spanish nutrition and health education (n=9) revealed: 1) emphasis of the heterogeneity of Spanish-speaking communities; 2) importance of including family in nutrition education; 3) importance of addressing cultural differences between Spanish-speaking and general United States culture; and 4) tips for engaging Spanish-speaking adults in health education. These findings were used to inform cultural adaptation of a nutrition education curriculum. © 2021 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
