Saint Joseph London to Discuss Allergies
During Bite Size Learning Event
Free health education event on Wednesday, September 19 at Laurel County Public Library
London, Ky. (August 27, 2018) – Each year, Kentucky is regularly ranked among the worst places to live for allergies by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Nearly 50 million Americans suffer from nasal allergies annually, and Saint Joseph London wants to help educate community members on what they can do to find some relief from the sneezing, coughing and puffy eyes.
Saint Joseph London invites the community to learn about allergies at the free Bite Size Learning health education event on Wednesday, September 19. The event will take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Laurel County Public Library, located at 120 College Park Drive in London. Jessica Lange, MD, KentuckyOne Health Ear, Nose and Throat Care, will be the featured guest speaker at the program.
Bite Size Learning is an educational series sponsored by Saint Joseph London. Each month, a physician or staff member from Saint Joseph London hosts a special lunch-and-learn-style presentation on a different health topic to increase awareness and educate the public.
Advance registration for this event is requested. Saint Joseph London provides free box lunches to registered attendees. To preregister, call 606.864.5759.
