Myths and misinformation have spread faster than the virus during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Beaufort County Community College Library continues its "Coping with COVID" mindfulness series for its Community Voices series with a myth-busting presentation. Even as some people are starting to get vaccinated, the pandemic is still ongoing and parallel crises around addiction and mental health have also emerged. 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 email@example.com.
The second presentation in the series on January 26 at 11:00 a.m. will feature Cindy Edwards, BSN and nationally certified nurse whose background is emergency, medicine, trauma and clinical trials. She will be discussing COVID myths and answering questions. She has been a nurse for 36 years, 13 of those as a school nurse. Since the onset of COVID, Cindy has worked closely with the Beaufort County Health Department.
Other sessions in the series include:
- February: You and Yoga-Simple Moves at Home
- March: The Dangers of Self-Medicating (Alcohol and drugs)
- April: Avenging Addiction
