Working with Nancy B. Emerson Lombardo, PhD, President and CEO of the BHWC, CC Donelan helped implement and teach lifestyle interventions developed through Nancy’s research for both treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease to improve the quality of life for older adults.  The current centerpiece endeavor is the internationally known Memory Preservation Nutrition® program (MPN™).  Based on hundreds of scientific studies, MPN™ is designed to improve cognitive and emotional brain health and overall body health for all ages.

Her father passed away from Alzheimer’s disease on July 19, 2017.
