Louisiana Association of Business and Industry’s (LABI) Annual Meeting and Luncheon

Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 09:00 AM · $165.00 USD

Join us for LABI's 2015 Annual Meeting Tuesday, Jan. 27 at the Crowne Executive Center as we bring together the top leaders in business, government, education, and the community to celebrate Louisiana’s growth and success over the past year and lay the groundwork to make sure the economic boom Louisiana is facing doesn’t turn into a bust. 

Dr. Ben Carson — one of the foremost surgeons of his time, a leading conservative and prospective Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential election — will headline this year’s event.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, is renowned for his innovative surgeries, which included 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.

Spring Jack Maddox Distinguished Lecture Series - Hobbs, NM

Monday, February 23, 2015 at 07:00 AM

Dr. Benjamin Carson will be the guest speaker for the 2015 Spring Jack Maddox Distinguished Lecture Series. The lecture will be held on FEBRUARY 23, 2015 at 7:00 p.m., at Tydings Auditorium in Hobbs. Tickets for the lecture are FREE, but required to enter. You may request tickets by mail by calling Andrea Dodson at USW at 575-492-2107 or by email at tickets@usw.edu. Tickets will also be available at area ticket locations beginning mid-December, 2014. 

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.

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 1997 and 2013.  In 2001, Carson was named by CNN and TIME magazine as one of the nation’s 20 foremost physicians and scientists. 

That same year, he was selected by the Library of Congress as one of 89 "Living Legends" on the occasion of its 200th anniversary. He is also the recipient of the 2006 Spingarn Medal which is the highest honor bestowed by the NAACP. In February, 2008, Carson was presented with the Ford’s Theatre Lincoln Medal by President Bush at the White House. In June, 2008, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by the President, which is the highest civilian honor in the land. Carson was recognized in November, 2008 by U.S. News & World Report and on February 7, 2009, the award-winning movie entitled Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story, starring Cuban Gooding, Jr. as Carson, premiered on TNT and is based on his memoir.

Carson is president and co-founder of the Carson Scholars Fund, which recognizes young people of all backgrounds for exceptional academic and humanitarian accomplishments. The Fund is currently operating in 50 states and the District of Columbia, having awarded more than $ 6.2 million dollars to more than 6200 scholars. The program also establishes Carson Reading Rooms to encourage young students and their families to discover the pleasure to be found in books and to recognize the true power of learning.

His first four books, Gifted Hands, THINK BIGThe Big Picture and Take the Risk: Learning to Identify, Choose and Live with Acceptable Risk (January, 2008), provide inspiration and insight for leading a successful life; a fifth book, America The Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great, was released in early 2012 and made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013. His sixth book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future was released on May 20, 2014 and has also made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Carson has been married for over 39 years to his wife, Candy, and is the father of three adult sons and has two grandchildren.
