The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center has named Dr Holly Shill MD as its new director.

Dr Shill said: “This is the most comprehensive Parkinson’s center in the nation and I hope to help it grow and serve even more people around Arizona.”

Her expertise extends beyond the diagnoses and treatment of Parkinson’s, including other involuntary movement disorders such as Huntington’s disease, dystonia and ataxia.

Dr Abraham Lieberman, one of Ali’s personal physicians and the Center’s founder, is now the emeritus program director but will still continue to treat patients.

Dr Jeremy Shefner, associate director and chair of neurology at Barrow Neurological Insitute, said: “The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center is known around the world for its extraordinary patient treatment and care.”

“We are confident that the Center will continue to grow in stature under Dr Shill’s leadership and remain worthy of Muhammad and Lonnie Ali’s support.”
