An Evening with Charles W. Collier: The Ups and Downs of Living with Alzheimer’s Disease

Posted May 14, 2013

Charles W. Collier is a retired senior philanthropic adviser at Harvard University and a volunteer for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. Collier was diagnosed in 2008 with Alzheimer’s disease; his illness has slowed his speech, but not his thinking. In 2013, Charlie, along with his partner Susan Stover, described the ups and downs of living with Alzheimer’s disease in three separate public forums before audiences who had a rare opportunity to hear directly from a person with the disease and ask personal questions.
