Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital family practitioner Dr. Antonio Zamorano hosted a teddy bear clinic for Cerritos Elementary School transitional kindergarten students. The children learned the value of being kind, tips on staying healthy, and “practiced” medicine using the doctor’s tools. The clinic was part of the Great Kindness Challenge.

Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital participated for the third year in the Great Kindness Challenge that took place Jan. 26-30. Nationwide, an estimated participation in excess of 4,000 schools and two million students resulted in 100 million acts of kindness.
