Dr. Boster Tackles Your Questions on Symptoms and Side Effects

Updated on November 20, 2020

In his second live Q&A on MyMSTeam, Dr. Aaron Boster dug deep into the topics of symptoms and side effects. MyMSTeam co-founder Mary Ray presented questions from MyMSTeam members that covered everything from dealing with MS headaches to preserving mobility to treatment trade-offs people with MS may need to make. Dr. Boster responded with his trademark good humor, deep knowledge, and compassion. The result was an entertaining mix of practical advice, inspirational stories, and new frameworks for thinking about symptoms and side effects.

Here are some of the things MyMSTeam members said about Dr. Boster:

  • “The only good thing about COVID is finding Dr. Boster.”
  • “OMG! Dr. Boster has a great sense of humor! Totally cracking me up!!”
  • “Thank you!!!! Got me tearing up!”

Dr. Aaron Boster, founder of The Boster Center for Multiple Sclerosis, is a board-certified neurologist specializing in multiple sclerosis and related central nervous system inflammatory disorders. He decided to become an MS doctor at age 12, as he watched his uncle Mark suffer from the disease in an era before treatment was available. Dr. Boster grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and attended Oberlin College. He earned his M.D. at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and completed an internship in internal medicine and a residency in neurology at the University of Michigan. He then completed a two-year fellowship in clinical neuroimmunology at Wayne State University.

Since then, Dr. Boster has been intimately involved in the care of people impacted by multiple sclerosis. He has been a principal investigator in numerous clinical trials, trained multiple MS doctors and nurse practitioners, and published extensively in medical journals. He lectures to both patients and providers worldwide with a mission to educate, energize, and empower people impacted by MS. He is the creator of more than 350 videos about MS on YouTube. He lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife Krissy, son Maxwell, and daughter Betty Mae.

Mary Ray, co-founder and COO of MyHealthTeams, has a deep understanding of consumer behavior and social networking, which has made the company’s mobile and web apps a daily habit for millions facing a chronic health condition. Her innovative vision for digital health solutions has transformed the way people connect with others who share their diagnosis, facilitating unfiltered conversation and accelerating access to trusted information. Recognized for building scalable platforms that drive consumer engagement, Mary was honored as a DTC Innovator and a PM360 ELITE in 2019. She has contributed to Forbes and been quoted in industry publications at the intersection of health and technology. She has spoken at conferences including the DTC Forum on Social Media and Technology, Health Datapalooza and Digital Pharma.
