Covenant Community Care to Host Dr. Ben Carson, Seeks Sponsors
Covenant Community Care will host Dr. Ben Carson, professor of Neurosurgery, Oncology, Plastic Surgery and Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University on April 11, 2013. The event, called "Courage to Care" will be held at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit and will inspire youth who attend with Dr. Carson's story of overcoming barriers. Dr. Carson grew up in a single parent home in Detroit with a mother who encouraged her children to achieve excellence, even while struggling with limited resources herself. His story was told in the book and film Gifted Hands. Proceeds from the event will help support medical and dental care for uninsured children at Covenant Community Care, a non-profit Health Center with five locations in Detroit.
