Candy Carson to visit Lee University Monday
By Ashlyn Poplin, Staff Writer
On Monday, Feb. 29 at 11 a.m. Candy Carson, wife of Republican presidential candidate and famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson, will speak in the Walker Lecture Hall of the Science and Math Complex about 'family, life, politics, and other small topics.'
Earlier this year, Candy released her memoir "A Doctor in the House: My Life With Ben Carson". In it, she opened up about her life being married to a neurosurgeon, as well as her position as a presidential candidate's wife.
In addition to Candy's music, psychology and pre-med degrees from Yale, she also holds an MBA from Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. Candy is also a former concert violinist and the coauthor of four books with Dr. Carson.
'Mrs. Carson has had an extraordinary life, going from the inner-city streets of Detroit, to the halls of Yale University, to a Presidential campaign,' Vice President for University Relations Jerome Hammond said. 'She is exactly the kind of person we want Lee students to meet.'
