D.J.'s Hero Awards Luncheon: Featuring Keynote Speaker Dr. Ben Carson

Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D.,
had a childhood dream of becoming a physician. Growing up in a single parent home, it was his mother who challenged her son to strive for excellence.  Young Ben persevered, and today is a full professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. 

Carson received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2008. Among his career highlights include the first and only successful separation of craniopagus (Siamese) twins joined at the back of the head in 1987.
