Muhammad Ali’s Passing is Reminder There is Still Work to be Done

Last week, the world lost Muhammad Ali, “The Greatest,” a hero, humanitarian and champion for Parkinson’s disease (PD). A sports legend and cultural icon, Ali was the world’s most famous Parkinson’s patient.

His passing is a reminder that the fight against PD is not over, and there is still much work to be done. Since 2003, public funding for Parkinson’s research has dropped 50 percent, from $300 million to just $150 million in 2016, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
