Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., is founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute, a new think tank/do tank whose mission is to promote the four founding principles that are cornerstones of our country: faith, liberty, community, and life, as well as pursue common sense solutions that challenge conventional groupthink.
Dr. Carson most recently served as the 17th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. For nearly 30 years, Secretary Carson served as Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
