Who is Johns Hopkins?
a. Johns Hopkins not only was a successful business man, but he left his imprint on the world long after he had died in 1873. With innovations in the medical world such as surgical gloves it became clear that Johns Hopkins was destined to make a difference in the world. Johns was able to leave behind such a large amount of money after passing that his family and business partners were able to fulfill his visions which included: Johns Hopkins University, an orphanage for African American children, and a medical hospital. Today, Dr. Ben Carson shows the world a little bit of Johns Hopkins with his countless medical successes and a vast amount of growing accomplishments just as Mr. Hopkins had done.
