Renown pediatric brain surgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson will be giving a lecture on health care at 1 p.m. at Seattle Pacific University today, Tuesday, April 6.
In 1987, Carson led a team of 70 in the first successful separation of craniopagus conjoined twins connected at the back of the head. During his distinguished career, he has received hundreds of awards and recognitions, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom. A highly regarded motivational speaker, Carson has addressed audiences from grade school classrooms to the National Prayer Breakfast. The 2009 movie Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story, starring Cuba Gooding Jr., is based on Carson’s life.
