    A National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence

    Parkinson’s Disease Resources

    The physicians and staff of the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center are committed to making life better for all who are affected by Parkinson’s disease, be they patients, their families or their caregivers. In that spirit, we have assembled the following resources in the hope that they will aid with disease management.

    Resource Center

    Visitors to the Resource Center can browse through a library of books and videos covering a wide variety of topics, use a computer or access health information or pick up free educational material. Staff at the Resource Center are available to answer questions and to provide the latest information about Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.

    It is not necessary to be a participant in Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center programs to access these resources.
