The Beaufort County Community College Library continues its "Coping with COVID" mindfulness series for its Community Voices series with a myth-busting presentation.

The series features speakers who will discuss yoga, drug and alcohol addiction, testing and vaccines, and myths about COVID-19. It was made possible by the Vidant Health Community Benefit Grant. Participants should register for these online Zoom presentations be emailing library@beaufortccc.edu.
