UWS Analise Dlugasch HEART Scholarship

Analise Dlugasch was a two-time FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management graduate, one of the founders of the FIU Equestrian student club, and an employee of FIU’s Office of Donor Relations. Tragedy struck one night in November 2014 when Analise was having dinner with a friend at a restaurant and began to choke. No one was able to help her as they waited for an ambulance.
