Kienle Center Story Slam

April 4, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Bring your family and friends and enjoy a night out while you listen to personal stories from our colleagues and friends, and maybe share a story of your own.

Penn State Health (all campuses) and College of Medicine students, faculty, residents, other healthcare providers, employees, your families, and friends are invited to attend the third Kienle Center Story Slam, a gathering where anyone can take a turn at the microphone and tell a true story based on the night’s theme. Three judges are chosen from the audience and each storyteller is given scores based on content and presentation. The competition aspect of the event is light-hearted!

Stories are shared with no notes, no props, no music. They are true, speak to the theme, and are five to six minutes long.

Hosted by: Jeff Beckman, vice president of corporate relations, marketing and communications, Penn State Health, and winner of the October 2023 Kienle Story Slam.

The Night’s Theme: “Unexpected Gifts”

Have a story to share? ​​​​​​​Sign up at the door.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

Dinner and drinks available for purchase and served before and during the show.

Registration appreciated but not mandatory, walk-ins welcome.

For more information email Claire de Boer or visit us on the web.
