Hospital officials to discuss contributions

Morre Dean, chief executive of Glendale Adventist Medical Center, is scheduled to appear live Thursday on "The Larry Zarian Show" to discuss the hospital's contributions to the area.

The show airs at 7 p.m. on Charter Cable channel 380. The viewer call-in number is (818) 547-3668.
