Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine is hosting a virtual talent show to benefit scholarships for students at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.

The event Geisinger Commonwealth’s Got Talent: Healing Through the Arts will be held at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 7. The show is Geisinger Commonwealth’s first fundraising talent show competition and allows the students a unique opportunity to showcase their talents while raising funds for student scholarships. The virtual event will feature 11 student musical acts, including group and solo singing, dancing and instrumental performances. WNEP news anchor Jon Meyer is serving as the master of ceremonies. He joins WNEP’s Julie Sidoni, who is a judge alongside Jaewon Ryu, M.D., J.D., Geisinger’s president and CEO; Steven J. Scheinman, M.D., Geisinger Commonwealth’s dean of students; and Geisinger Commonwealth alum Nelson Sofoluke, M.D., Class of ’17.

The top three acts will receive cash prizes of $500, $250 and $100 respectively, with the judges’ scores counting for 80% of the total score and the final 20% coming from fundraising totals on behalf of each act.

Attendees can win prizes and bid on auction items during the event. 

The talent show is raising funds for much-needed student scholarships, which enable outstanding students to achieve their goal of attending medical school and living a life of service to the community, regardless of their financial background. Scholarships at Geisinger Commonwealth help ensure that bright, medical minds are not denied an education simply because they can’t afford it. Events like this have a profound impact on students and on the patients they will eventually serve.
