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.
