The Forum Club of the Palm Beaches

Monday, September 08, 2014 at 12:00 PM · $75.00 USD
Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, FL

The Forum Club of the Palm Beaches opens its season Sept. 8 with Dr. Ben Carson, who has sparked an independent presidential draft movement after speaking at last year’s National Prayer Breakfast where he tore into political correctness and Obamacare and warned of moral decay in America.

Since then, there has been a widespread conservative move for the retired neurosurgeon and best-selling author to run for President of the United States.  A Wall Street Journal op-ed piece titled “Ben Carson for President” said that Dr. Carson “may not be politically correct, but he’s closer to correct than we’ve heard in years.”  There are websites offering car magnets, mugs, t-shirts, even baby body suits with the Carson for President 2016 theme.

The noon luncheon will be held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, 650 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. Tickets may not be ordered until receipt of your electronic or standard newsletter. At that time, contact Administrator Wendy Norris at (561) 881-9977 to place your order.

Note the new ticket prices for  2014-2015 season:  Member tickets, $40; guest and applicant tickets, $50; public tickets, $75; reserved tables of 10, $450 and student tables, $300.

Carson, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush in 2008, is a former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon who in 1987 became the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins.  He is the author of six best-sellers, including his latest One Nation.  Barnes & Noble will hold a book signing following the luncheon.

Although being urged to run for president by Republicans, Carson is currently registered an Independent.  He has left open the possibility of running. Carson speaks of personal responsibility, the value of education and the dangers posed by political correctness to freedom of expression. He has been picking up support across the country from American voters who have grown frustrated with the current direction of the nation.

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 aspectsof 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. 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, Dr. 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. 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.

Dr. Carson is president and co-founder of the Carson Scholars Fund, which recognizes young is currently operating in 50 states and the District of Columbia, having awarded more than $ 5.6 million dollars to more than 5600 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. Dr. Carson is also the co-founder of Angels of the OR under the auspices of the Baltimore Community Foundation, which provides grants to assist neurosurgery patients with expenses not covered by insurance.

His four books, Gifted Hands, THINK BIG, The 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, (2012) was a New York Times bestseller. His next book, One Nation, is scheduled for release May 2014.

In addition writing a weekly opinion column for The Washington Times, Dr. Carson is FOX News contributor.

He has been married for over 38 years to his wife, Candy, and is the father of three sons.


Focus on Life Dinner

Monday, October 06, 2014 at 06:30 PM · $75.00 USD
Devos Place Ballroom in Grand Rapids, MI

Don't miss the 27th annual Focus on Life Benefit Dinner at the DeVos Place ballrooms in downtown Grand Rapids. This exciting event will feature Dr. Ben Carson as the keynote speaker.

Carson’s remarkable journey from tough, inner-city youth to history-making neurosurgeon celebrates and illustrates the power we all have to excel and influence others. As the son of a single mother in a tough urban neighborhood, Carson was running with the wrong crowd and failing in school. He could easily have spiraled downward, but he chose another path. Driven by a passion for science and helping those less fortunate, Carson pursued medicine and he would ultimately become one of the most respected neurosurgeons in the world.
