I am proud to announce that U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson will attend the Governor’s Health Care Economic Development Summit in Jackson next month.

Before joining President Donald J. Trump‘s administration, Secretary Carson was a pioneer in the medical field. For nearly 30 years, Secretary Carson served as Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, a position he assumed when he was just 33 years old, becoming the youngest major division director in the hospital’s history. In 1987, he successfully performed the first separation of craniopagus twins conjoined at the back of the head. He also performed the first fully successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins in 1997 in South Africa.

Dr. Carson has received dozens of honors and awards in recognition of his achievements, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, our nation’s highest civilian honor.

The Governor’s Health Care Economic Development Summit will address the benefits of a robust healthcare economy and how healthcare can be an economic driver through community planning and development. I cannot think of anyone more knowledgeable or qualified to participate in our Summit, and I am so grateful Secretary Carson has agreed to attend.
