Dr. Andelloux previously served in the Peace Corps from 1999 to 2001 as a health care volunteer in Senegal, West Africa. As an urban volunteer, he was the primary liaison between fellow health care volunteers in the Matam Region of Senegal and local governmental and non-governmental agencies. He spearheaded campaigns on polio vaccination, infant dehydration care, HIV/AIDS prevention, and malaria prevention. In addition, he took on side projects teaching English in local high schools and improving information technology utilization in local hospitals and clinics.
With his roots in Southeastern New England, Dr. Andelloux moved from Rhode Island to Nantucket in part to be closer to his family, and has purchased a home on the island with his partner Megan.
“We’ve been coming to Nantucket for 10 years,” Dr. Andelloux said. “We fell in love with the island, and not just in the summer, but also in the offseason when it’s quiet and peaceful. We will enjoy living here year-round.” Dr. Andelloux enjoys cooking and board games, and is looking forward to learning how to fish on Nantucket.
