Dr. Carson was a candidate in the 2015 presidential primaries before accepting the position as the 17th United States Secretary of HUD where his team was responsible for many innovative programs such as the Foster Youth to Independence program (FYI) which helps youth who have aged out of foster care obtain the support necessary to set them on a trajectory of success. His story of overcoming obstacles is certain to inspire. Tickets are available online at ParkinsonAssociationSWFL.org/events or by calling our office at 239-239-417-3465.l
