Sometimes spending an evening at Johns Hopkins Medicine isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

For one night only the innovators of the Stoop Storytelling series will combine with the innovators at Johns Hopkins Medicine for an operation that is sure to be a success.

On Friday, May 4th, the JHMI Office of Cultural Affairs will host The Stoop Storytelling Series in Turner Auditorium for “Hopkins: A World Inside a City, II.” Seven storytellers will get seven minutes each to share true, personal tales about close calls, humbling experiences, great victories, and crushing defeats — anything that shines a light on what life is truly like at the renowned medical institution.

Amongst the storytellers are some of Hopkins’ best-known, including Dr.Robert Montgomery, director of the Comprehensive Transplant Center, Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa (a.k.a. Dr Q), associate professor of neurological surgery and oncology, neuroscience, and cellular and molecular medicine, and Dr. Chris Kraft, co-director of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit.

As always, three audience members will be selected at random to hop on stage and share their own abbreviated tales of medical miracles.

Award-winning restaurant Clementine will be vending food before the show and local troubadour Caleb Stine will sing before the show.
