As the son of a single mother in a tough urban neighborhood, Carson was running with the wrong crowd and failing in school-feeling as though he had no way out. 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. Carson’s riveting presentation inspires audiences to take charge of their lives, no matter what obstacles confront them. Soft-spoken yet charismatic, Carson commands the stage. He captivates people with a compelling presentation that’s humorous, insightful and thought provoking-showing them the keys to turning great challenges into still greater triumphs. Carson had to take his own advice when an aggressive form of cancer struck and his focus turned to survival and recovery. It was just the latest chapter in Carson’s life, once again proving the power of the determined mind. Carson's life is chronicled in the original TNT movie, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. He is author of several books including The New York Times best seller, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great (January 2012). In June 2013, after 40 years of medical endeavors, Carson retired and today serves as Professor Emeritus of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University. In addition writing a weekly opinion column for The Washington Times, Carson is a FOX News contributor and currently working on his newest book, One Nation, scheduled for release in May 2014.
