The ECU Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders hosts the group from 9 to 11 a.m. Fridays in Room 1305 in the Health Sciences Building at the College of Allied Health Sciences.

Participants engage in a variety of activities to improve communication skills. Contact Sherri Winslow at 252-744-6142 or winslowsh@ecu.edu for more information.
