Annals Story Slam

Story Slams are events that celebrate storytelling by providing an opportunity for participants to verbally share brief stories with an audience. Building on the popular Annals feature On Being a Doctor, Annals hosted an “On Being a Doctor” Story Slam on 18 November 2015. This Annals Story Slam was made possible with generous support from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. Here we share the stories told by the 12 participating storytellers.
