As a nurse practitioner and Board member of the Feingold Association, Colleen had been invited to be on the show Woman to Woman, back in the 1980s … and that day I was home with the flu so I was on the couch watching TV. There she was, talking about the Feingold Diet for ADHD, and it changed my life – and my children’s lives – forever.
Years later, in 1998, we worked together to raise funds for the legal expenses of one of the Feingold Association’s medical advisors, who had been attacked by the California Medical Board for using research-based “alternative” treatments in his practice. Colleen’s efforts helped change the future of medicine in California.
Visiting Colleen was one of the high points of our trip; we spent time going through old files and memories, and we had a nice dinner at her favorite restaurant, but none of our cameras cooperated, so this is the only picture that survived.
