Carteret Links Second Installment

Second Installment in “Carteret Links” Lecture Series

Morehead City, N.C. (February 14, 2023) – On February 28, 2023, the second installment of the Carteret Links health education lecture series will focus on suicide prevention. The lecture is open to the community and will take place from 6 – 8 p.m. in-person at Carteret Community College, with remote participation available at The Bridge Downeast, Western Carteret Library, and Fort Benjamin Park.

Carteret Links is a new initiative offered by Carteret Community College, in partnership with the Carteret County Health and Human Services Department to bring lectures presented by local experts on health-related topics that are pertinent to community members of Carteret County.

Lectures are offered synchronously throughout the county at various remote learning classrooms that have been equipped with funds received by a grant from the USDA. 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 specially curated for Carteret County residents. Additional program series will be offered throughout the year and more information on upcoming lectures will be available online at www.carteret.edu/carteret-links.

The remaining 2023 spring series includes the following presentations taking place from 6 – 8 p.m. on the following topics:
