College News & Updates

Morehead City, N.C. (August 23, 2023) – This fall Carteret Community College continues the Carteret Links Health Education lecture series with the first installment taking place on September 21, which will focus on the importance of sleep for health. Adults and children are encouraged to attend this presentation hosted by Carteret Health Care’s Sleep Diagnostics Center and Beaufort mayor, Sharon Harker.

The lecture will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in person at Carteret Community College (Wayne West 322), with remote participation available at Western Carteret Library in Cape Carteret and The Bridge Downeast on Harkers Island.

Carteret Links is an initiative offered by Carteret Community College in partnership with the Carteret County Health Department to provide lectures presented by local experts on health-related topics that are pertinent to community members.

Lectures are offered synchronously throughout the county at various remote learning classrooms that have been equipped with funds received by a grant from the US Department of Agriculture. Speakers will present at one location while audiences seated in classrooms around the county participate in real time from a location conveniently located near their homes.

This series will spread crucial community health education to communities that may not otherwise have easy access to such presentations. Carteret Links lectures are free, open to the public, and specifically curated for Carteret County residents.

The 2023 fall series will continue October 5th with a presentation on Drug Trends & Updates with Sheriff Asa Buck and the Carteret County Health Department. This presentation will be offered in-person at Carteret Community College and in real-time remote classrooms at The Bridge Downeast, Western Carteret Library, and Fort Benjamin Park.

Carteret Links topics to follow include Stress Management on November 2 and Healthy Holiday Living Choices on December 7. For more details on classroom locations, speaker credentials, and upcoming lectures visit or call Jared Jones at (252)-723-0616.
