Why does Orlando Immunology Center (OIC) participate?
For over 20 years, Orlando Immunology Center (OIC) has been dedicated to improving care and ending HIV. OIC understands the vital services HIV nonprofits provide. OIC was the first to actively engage with community partners placing patients needs firsts. We’ve been doing this long before it had a name like Corporate Social Responsibility. This close coordination allows patients to receive the resources they need and the best care possible. Today, our Community Relations Manager, Sam Graper, coordinates these efforts. He also serves as the Planning Council Chair. If you have any additional questions, he can be reached at sgraper@OICorlando.com
