Shanelle D’Alessio, MD (she/her)
Undergraduate: UNC Chapel Hill
Medical School: Quinnipiac University
Shanelle grew up in East Lyme, CT and spent many childhood summers at the beach in Rhode Island. She graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a Bachelors in Biology and Psychology and a new found love of college basketball (go Tar Heels!). After undergrad, Shanelle moved to Nicaragua where she worked for an NGO teaching ESL and managing community health programs focused on infectious diseases and chronic conditions. A few years later, Shanelle returned home to attend medical school at Quinnipiac University in North Haven, CT. As a medical student, Shanelle led a student-run free clinic and community health collaboration in Bridgeport, CT and graduated with a concentration in Global, Community and Public Health. She was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society and was the recipient of the Dean’s Leadership Award. Shanelle is very excited to now become a part of the Brown and Hasbro family. She is interested in primary care, endocrinology, and hematology/oncology, and no matter what, she hopes to be involved in the greater Providence community. Shanelle enjoys crosswords, coffee, and puzzles. Outside the hospital, you can find Shanelle on the beach with a good book, in the gym trying to keep up with her exercise-enthusiast husband, or spending time with her family throughout New England.
