The Center is also working hard to ensure that Ali’s legacy and his connection to Parkinson’s continues to remain strong by offering classes designed to alleviate symptoms such as Knock Out PD Boxing, a noncontact exercise program that lets patients channel their inner Muhammad Ali.

The Muhammad Ali All Star Conference is another example of keeping a legacy alive.  This yearly, free conference provides patients, their loved ones, and caregivers with a day full of education, camaraderie and mental fitness.  Sprinkled throughout the workshops and activities are discussions on Parkinson’s disease issues and research topics related to it.
