Rebecca Chopp, PhD, is an Alzheimer's activist and educator. Chopp co-founded Voices of Alzheimer's and serves as a member of the  Board of the National Alzheimer's Association, and is a member of the board of the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. She is a frequent speaker and writer on timely diagnosis, research for a cure, access and affordability of drugs, and lifestyle interventions for those with Alzheimer's. Chopp's book, "Still Me," will be published in 2024.

Before Chopp's diagnosis with Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's in 2019, she was a widely published author, editor, and renowned acedemic in the fields of education, philosophy, religion, and feminism. 

Chopp 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, of Provost at Emory University, and of Dean of Divinity at Yale University. Chopp is also an ordained United Methodist Minister. Since retiring, Chopp devotes every day to living with joy. She enjoys painting classical portraits and abstracts, hiking in the Colorado mountains with Buhdy her dog, of laughing and loving Fred, her husband, as well as reading and and spending time with friends and family.

Chopp defies the stigma surrounding Alzheimer’s by living with joy. Her goal is to help everyone understand that those with this disease can find ways to contribute and flourish.
