BEST NEW FGCU PHILANTHROPIST

Dr. Elaine Nicpon Marieb

Although she lived in Sarasota for many years, Dr. Marieb chose to relocate to Naples earlier this year. She already had ties to the area, as the Florida Gulf Coast University health professions college building bears her name in honor of the $5 million contribution she made in 2012. Late last year, the prolific and successful anatomy and physiology textbook author contributed another $10 million to the college. In tribute to her, it is now known as the Elaine Nicpon Marieb College of Health & Human Services.
