Bite Size Learning events occur on the third Wednesday of each month at the Laurel County Public Library, located at 120 College Park Drive in 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.
