Join Our Next LiveTalk: A Globetrotting Couple’s Fight Against Alzheimer’s

By Nicholas Chan | Friday October 15th at 05:00 PM ET / 02:00 PM PT

Anthony Copeland-Parker and his partner Catherine Elizabeth Popp have long had a passion for endurance running. After Copeland-Parker received a heart-valve replacement and Popp was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2014, both of whom were in their fifties, they decided to retire, sell their house and embark on a journey of running in marathons around the globe.

Being Patient will speak with Copeland-Parker, author of Running All Over The World, about him and Popp’s nomadic lifestyle, their experience of traveling to 82 countries ever since their retirement and the couple’s pursuit of fulfilling their dreams in the face of Alzheimer’s.

We are a team of dedicated journalists covering the latest research on Alzheimer’s, bringing you access to the experts and elevating the patient perspective on what it’s like to live with dementia.
