Rebecca Chopp: From Blank Canvas to Portrait

Five years after a routine checkup led to the life-altering diagnosis of early-stage Alzheimer’s, Rebecca Chopp is a picture of joy, health, and discipline. With the same verve she once poured into higher education leadership and research, today her passion is focused on Alzheimer’s activism. From the living room of her Broomfield home, the retired University of Denver chancellor and renowned scholar talks about how she’s still educating and learning, with her focus at this stage on lifestyle intervention, research, and timely diagnosis of the progressive brain disease. Along the way, she has discovered a creative talent in painting that, combined with a daily regimen of exercise and diet, have given her a renewed sense of purpose — one that is focused on quality time.
