Dr. Hunter is an Assistant Professor of Counseling Psychology at Auburn University with a passion for connecting aspects of mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Having been diagnosed with MS in 2018, Cynthia became dedicated to learning as much as possible about multiple sclerosis in the African-American community and founded the A.A.R.M.S. (African-American Resources for Multiple Sclerosis). Diagnosed in his junior year of college, Tyler became the first individual to play division one college football with MS and now travels the country as a professional speaker.
