On Friday, May 12, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., at the York Public Library, 15 Long Sands Road, in York, York Hospital and Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine will present a lunch & learn program, “Advances in Hip & Knee Replacement: All About Robotic Surgery” with Michael Morwood, MD. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and complimentary boxed lunches will be available “to go.”
