Dr. Ben Carson, noted conservative, will deliver the keynote address at Louisiana Association of Business and Industry’s (LABI) Annual Meeting and Luncheon on Jan. 27, 2015, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Conference Center in Baton Rouge.
Carson directed pediatric neurosurgery at the John Hopkins Children’s Center for nearly a quarter of a century. He is renowned for his innovative neurosurgeries, which include the first successful separation of conjoined twins at the back of the head.
Carson skyrocketed to national prominence after delivering the keynote speech at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast where he declared his political views on several social and fiscal issues, including public education, health care and taxation.
In 2001, CNN and Time magazine named Carson as one of the nation's 20 foremost physicians and scientists, and The Library of Congress selected him as one of 89 "Living Legends."
In 2006, the NAACP awarded Carson with its highest honor, the Spingarn Medal.
President George W. Bush recognized his groundbreaking contributions to medicine two years later and named him as the 2008 recipient of the Ford's Theater Lincoln Medal and Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honors.
TNT brought Carson’s life to the big screen in 2009 in the TV movie, “Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.” Cuba Gooding Jr. portrayed Carson.
Carson is the author of five books. In his first three books – “Gifted Hands,” “The Big Picture” and “THINK Big” – Carson shares his personal philosophies on success, hard work, and faith in God. In his newest book, “One Nation,” he calls on America to toss aside party parlance and concentrate on civil dialogue for real problem solving.
Mark your calendars for the event, tickets will be on sale on LABI.org later this year.
Please ask organizers for an agenda to find out the exact date and time that Dr. Carson will speak at this conference.

Benjamin Carson, M.D.
Renowned Pediatric Neurosurgeon, Inspiring Storyteller, New York Times Best-selling Author and FOX News Contributor Exclusively WSB
Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., had a childhood dream of becoming a physician. Growing up in a single parent home and being challenged by dire poverty, poor grades, a horrible temper and low self-esteem appeared to preclude the realization of that dream, until his mother, with only a third-grade education, challenged her sons to strive for excellence. Young Ben persevered and today is an emeritus professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where he directed pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for 39 years. He was the inaugural recipient of a professorship dedicated in his name in May, 2008 and is now the Emeritus Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D. and Dr. Evelyn Spiro, R.N. Professor of Pediatric Neurosurgery, having retired on June 30, 2013.
Some career highlights include the first and only successful separation of craniopagus (Siamese) twins joined at the back of the head in 1987, the first completely successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins in 1997 in South Africa and the first successful placement of an intrauterine shunt for a hydrocephalic twin. Although he has been involved in many newsworthy operations, he feels that every case is noteworthy -- deserving of maximum attention. He is interested in all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery and has a special interest in trigeminal neuralgia (a severe facial pain condition) in adults.
Dr. Carson holds more than 60 honorary doctorate degrees and has received literally hundreds of awards and citations. He is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, the Institute of Medicine/National Academy of Science, the Horatio Alger Society of Distinguished Americans and many other prestigious organizations. He sits on the board of directors of numerous organizations, including Kellogg Company, Costco Wholesale Corporation, the Academy of Achievement and is an Emeritus Fellow of the Yale Corporation, the governing body of Yale University. He was appointed in 2004 by President George W. Bush to serve on the President’s Council on Bioethics. He is a highly regarded motivational speaker who has addressed various audiences from school systems and civic groups to corporations and has spoken twice during the President’s National Prayer Breakfast.
In 2001, Dr. Carson was named by CNN and TIME magazine as one of the nation’s 20 foremost physicians and scientists.

Dr. Carson was recognized in November, 2008 by U.S. News & World Report and Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership, as one of “America’s Best Leaders.” On February 7, 2009, the award-winning movie entitled Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story, starring Cuban Gooding, Jr. as Dr. Carson, premiered on TNT and is based on his memoir.
