Rebecca Chopp, PhD: Living With Alzheimer’s, Living With Joy

February 22 10:00 am 10:30 am PST

On Thursday, February 22nd at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, Alzheimer’s educator and activist Rebecca Chopp, Ph.D., joins Being Patient Live talks to discuss her upcoming book Still Me: Accepting Alzheimer’s Without Losing Yourself. As she discussed in a previous live talk with us, she’ll also be speaking about how she defies the stigma of Alzheimer’s by living with joy. 

Before Chopp’s diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s in 2019, she was a widely published author, editor, and academic in the fields of education, philosophy, religion, and feminism. In particular, she served as the 18th and first female chancellor of the University of Denver. She has also served as president of Swarthmore College and Colgate University, as Provost at Emory University, and as Dean of Divinity at Yale University. 

Since her retirement, Chopp has devoted her days to living with joy. She enjoys painting classical portraits and abstracts, hiking in the Colorado mountains with Buhdy, her dog, and spending time with friends and family. She also co-founded the advocacy group Voices of Alzheimer’s and serves as a board member of both the Alzheimer’s Association’s national organization and its Colorado Chapter. In addition to her writing and art, she is a frequent speaker on timely diagnosis, research for a cure, access and affordability of drugs, and lifestyle interventions for those with Alzheimer’s. 

RSVP to this live talk to learn more about her upcoming book — and her guidance for living well with Alzheimer’s.
