Dr. Ben Carson, the former Hopkins neurosurgeon who announced his candidacy for president this week, will visit with Baltimore faith and community leaders on Thursday.

Carson, a longtime Baltimore County resident who led the Johns Hopkins Hospital pediatric neurosurgery department, will meet with those leaders in East Baltimore -- not in West Baltimore, where the recent unrest and protests took place.

A spokeswoman did not respond to a request to clarify if Carson's visit is related to the Freddie Gray case.

Carson is also set to speak to at a Maryland Right to Life banquet later Thursday evening in Woodlawn.
