    The Lonnie and Muhammad Ali Legacy Care Program

    Lonnie Ali’s vision for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center is to offer all patients the same level of personalized care that Muhammad Ali received. We created the Lonnie and Muhammad Ali Legacy Care Program to provide compassionate, patient-centered palliative care to people living with Parkinson’s disease and related disorders, who are under the care of a physician at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.

    Palliative care focuses on improving quality of life for people with chronic illnesses and supporting their caregivers. Our palliative care team understands the everyday challenges that you and your family face, and they are dedicated to helping you create a roadmap for the future.

    If you are interested in participating in the Legacy Care Program, please contact your neurologist at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center. It is never too early to be referred to this program if you are in need of assistance or support. Our palliative care can help you navigate your way through this very personalized journey, reminding you that you are never alone.
