CHAPTER 1

History of Adolescent Medicine and Health Care

HEATHER MUNRO PRESCOTT, PHD


HISTORY PRECEDING ORGANIZED ADOLESCENT HEALTH CARE

Interest in providing specialized health care to adolescents is a product of ideas about youth that emerged during the early 20th century. The work of developmental psychologist G. Stanley Hall was primarily responsible for establishing adolescence as a distinct developmental category. Hall was also the first to suggest establishing a branch of medicine for adolescents, writing that his book had prompted a deluge of letters from parents and relatives of young people asking for medical advice. "Had I been a physician" Hall wrote, "I might have easily worked up a lucrative practice from such cases"

Yet a new medical field dedicated to this age group did not appear until the 1950s, when adolescent medicine evolved as a subspecialty of pediatrics. This did not mean that adolescents' health care needs were ignored. Rather, the settings in which young people received health care have changed considerably over the course of history.

Prior to the early 20th century, most adolescents, as well as children and adults, received health care from female family members within the home. This was especially true in colonial America, when the number of trained physicians was much lower than in Europe. Advice for caring for sick family members was available in newspapers, almanacs, and domestic medical manuals written by physicians. When an ailment proved to be beyond the healing capabilities of a homemaker, she would rely on a midwife, who typically had training and experience not only in labor and delivery but diagnosis and treatment of illness.

Enslaved African-American youth also received most of their health care within the household or plantation. Typically, slaves received health care from older slave women, who relied on home remedies adapted from West African healing traditions. Owners of large plantations also contracted with local white physicians to provide care for slaves of all ages. After the importation of slaves was outlawed in 1808, slaveholders took special interest in protecting the fertility of young female slaves, because the only legal way to increase the slave population was through reproduction. The estimated mean age of menarche among adolescent female slaves was 15.


LATE 19TH CENTURY

Prior to the 1920s, a significant percentage of adolescents were compelled to start working for wages at an early age to help support their families. The first national labor data on youth employment, collected in 1880, indicate that 32% of all males and 12% of all females aged 10 to 19 worked for wages. These figures varied considerably according to race and ethnic background; the labor force participation rate of children aged 10 to 19 was considerably higher among black males (66%) and females (44%) than among white males (43%) and females (13%). Likewise, the rate among foreign-born children exceeded that of their counterparts born in the United States — by about 9% and 16% among males and females, respectively. These differences may be largely attributable to the higher earnings levels of white and native-born families. In addition, labor force participation among rural children exceeded urban rates by about 8%.

The poor conditions of many places of employment took a heavy toll on young persons' health. Work in crowded textile mills and sweatshops led to high rates of respiratory illnesses, especially tuberculosis, which was the leading cause of death among adolescents and young adults at the turn of the 20th century. Young workers frequently were injured by heavy machinery too large for them to operate safely. Although some factories, mines, and logging camps contracted with physicians to provide medical service to employees on a fixed per annum basis, most employers did not provide health care or health insurance for their employees. Those who were absent from work because of illness or injury typically lost their jobs.

Larger cities built general hospitals and freestanding dispensaries to provide free health care for growing numbers of poor and immigrant adolescents who needed medical attention. The first children's hospital in the United States opened in Philadelphia in 1855. Several other large cities, such as Boston, Washington, DC, Detroit, and Chicago, created children's hospitals in the late 19th century. In 1909, there were only 25 children's hospitals in the country, compared with 4,359 general hospitals. Children's hospitals seldom treated patients over the age of 12. Administrators of general hospitals recognized that young children needed to be separated from the rest of the hospital population, but they placed adolescents with adult patients. Thus, those who could afford to do so still employed private physicians and nurses to care for them within their homes.

During the 19th century, a variety of public agencies and private philanthropic organizations created institutions for sick and needy adolescents. Although not all of these were designed for health care, the rapid spread of illness among those housed in close quarters necessitated the creation of hospitals and infirmaries as auxiliaries to orphanages, almshouses, and asylums for adolescents with physical, cognitive, or sensory disabilities. Boarding schools for Native American children, started in the late 1870s to separate Native American children from their traditions and make them truly "American," proved to be breeding grounds for contagious diseases, especially tuberculosis and trachoma. White adolescents in private and public schools also were vulnerable to epidemic diseases, such as measles, whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria, and tuberculosis. School boards attempted to control the spread of disease by requiring school children and adolescents to be vaccinated against smallpox, diphtheria, and other diseases prior to attending school. Then as now, a number of parents objected strongly to compulsory vaccination. Some felt that vaccination was dangerous, whereas others resented the intrusion of state officials into private family matters. To prevent the spread of disease and to protect students' health, schools began in the 1890s to hire physicians as medical inspectors. These physicians identified a set of diseases that seemed to be caused and/or exacerbated by the environment of 19th-century schools, many of which lacked adequate light, ventilation, heat, or sanitary facilities. Medical experts noted that American school rooms, especially those in urban areas, were breeding grounds for the spread of disease and called for reforms that would eliminate hazards to student health.


EARLY 20TH CENTURY

At the same time, child welfare reformers successfully lobbied for legislation to protect the nation's children and youth. Their activism led to the creation of the US Children's Bureau in 1912. This agency led efforts to improve child health and welfare, as well as movements to outlaw child labor and mandate school attendance through the age of 16. As a result of these reforms, school attendance for adolescents grew dramatically. According to US Census figures, in 1890 only 6.7% of 14- to 17-year-olds were enrolled in high school. By 1920, this figure had risen to 32.3% and by 1930 more than 50% of adolescents were enrolled in junior and senior high schools. During the Great Depression, widespread unemployment and New Deal legislation further restricting child labor pushed high school attendance rates to 75% and graduation rates to 50%.


FIRST ADOLESCENT OUTPATIENT CLINIC

The first mention of an outpatient clinic specifically for adolescents was in a 1918 article from Archives of Pediatrics. The article described a separate clinic for girls aged 11 to 16 established by San Francisco physician Amelia E. Gates, MD, as a branch of the children's clinic at the Stanford University Medical School 2 years earlier. Gates observed that malnourishment was a common problem among her patients, with a significant number recorded as underweight for their age, anemic, or having some other dietary deficiency. Postural defects and scoliosis were present in more than one-quarter of her patients. Investigation and treatment of menstrual problems formed a large part of the work of the clinic. Gates wrote it was "surprising how many girls come to us with no knowledge either of the advent or the meaning of the menstrual function," because of erroneous information gathered from other girls or lack of adequate instruction from mothers. Gates believed that one of her main objectives was to make up for this lack of information. Diseases of the teeth and gums were the most common of all, but Gates lacked sufficient facilities for even the most basic dental work.

Gates observed that when the clinic started, she was concerned mainly with medical issues, but she soon found that given her clientele, who came predominantly from working-class families in the Bay area, she and her staff "could hardly confine ourselves to medical work alone" but that the "psychical phenomenon" of the adolescent period was central to their functions as well. A number of the girls in her clinic were referred from associated charities and under the care of foster mothers. The staff also had to deal with other problems in the home, mental overstrain in school, worries about finding employment after graduation, and "the various social maladjustments of our modern life." The clinic "assumed the character of a girls club," providing after-school activities and "wholesome amusement" for the girls' leisure hours. According to Gates, many of the girls looked forward to coming to the clinic, "knowing they can bring their small troubles and worries and feeling sure of a sympathetic understanding and an attempt at effective help." Gates wrote that even after finding jobs, former patients still "hold their allegiance to the clinic and return to us from time to time," usually because of physical disability caused by work-related injuries.


RELATIONSHIP AMONG HEALTH, ACADEMIC SUCCESS, AND ACCESS TO CARE

During the late 1910s and 1920s, the educational psychologist Lewis Terman argued that public schools also should treat physical illnesses and defects that hindered a student's academic success. He proposed that schools hire nurses, who would not only examine students at school but follow up on cases by visiting the students' homes to ensure that medical treatment was being followed. He also realized that many families, especially immigrant, urban, and rural poor, could not afford medical care on their own. Therefore, he argued that the second essential step in promoting the health of students was to create medical clinics in the nation's schools. These suggestions met with fierce opposition from the American Medical Association (AMA) and other medical organizations, who saw this as the first step toward "socialized medicine." Terman replied that free medical and dental clinics for the nation's children and youth were no different from universal public school education supported by taxpayer dollars. Nevertheless, opposition from the AMA led public schools to abandon school medical clinics as a health care strategy. Instead, they limited their role to providing health education and ensuring that students were properly vaccinated and in sufficiently good health to attend school.

Instead, traditional fee-for-service practice remained the primary model for adolescent health care delivery for decades. Access to these services depended heavily on one's ability to pay. The shortcomings of this system became painfully apparent during the Great Depression of the 1930s, as millions of Americans lost their jobs and could no longer afford physicians' fees. Among the most destitute were the nation's rural farm families, who had the lowest per capita income in the nation and experienced the highest rates of preventable illnesses such as pellagra, hookworm, syphilis, tuberculosis, malaria, and typhoid fever. To address the plight of the nation's farm families, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Congress created the Farm Security Administration (FSA). In addition to providing low-interest loans and other financial benefits to impoverished farmers, the FSA also created a network of prepaid medical cooperative plans that at the agency's peak enrolled more than 650,000 poor rural farmers and their families. Because the FSA targeted those who had few resources to pay for medical care and was a voluntary program that allowed for free choice of physician, the program did not encounter the same attacks from medical organizations about the "socialization of medicine" as did other state-funded health care programs. Although the FSA was disbanded during World War II, the agency's medical program served as a model for the growth of third-party insurance in the postwar period.


LATE 20TH CENTURY

World War II and its aftermath led to increased attention on the health of adolescents, especially of the nation's young men. Data collected by the Selective Service indicated that 25% of the 18- and 19-year-old registrants who reported for the draft were rejected for military service. Despite the efforts of the FSA, rejection rates were higher for farmers (41%) than for other occupational groups. Racial discrimination and unequal access to health care also led to higher rates of rejection among blacks than among white registrants. These observations led William M. Schmidt, MD, regional medical consultant for the US Children's Bureau, to call once again for the creation of medical clinics in the nation's schools, as well as reforms in medical education that would better equip pediatricians and general practitioners to care for adolescents.


FIRST HOSPITAL-BASED ADOLESCENT UNIT AND THE SOCIETY FOR ADOLESCENT MEDICINE

The mainstream medical profession continued to oppose school-based medical care, as well as President Truman's efforts to establish national health insurance. However, these calls for increased attention to the health of adolescents led to the emergence of adolescent medicine as a pediatric subspeciality. The first medical unit in the United States devoted exclusively to adolescents was founded by J. Roswell Gallagher, MD, at Boston Children's Hospital in 1951. The Adolescent Unit represented a major shift in approach to the teenage patient: before the 1950s, most physicians who treated adolescents discussed the patient's health problems with the parent and seldom allowed young people to speak for themselves. In contrast, Gallagher and his staff insisted that teenaged patients needed a doctor of their own who would see patients separately from their parents, who would protect their confidentiality, and who would place teenagers' concerns first. The Boston Adolescent Unit served as a model for other hospitals in North America. By the mid- 1960s, there were 55 adolescent clinics in hospitals in the United States and Canada, and today more than half of all children's hospitals in the United States have units dedicated to the health care of teenagers. The expansion of adolescent health services led to the creation of a professional organization for adolescent specialists, now called the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM), established in 1968, and the founding of its official professional journal The Journal of Adolescent Health Care, first published in 1980 (now the Journal of Adolescent Health) In 1991, an application was made by leaders in the field to institute a board-certification examination for physicians interested in becoming subspecialists in adolescent medicine. The American Board of Pediatrics is the parent board for this examination. However, because of a joint agreement with the American Board of Family Practice and the American Board of Internal Medicine, after completing 3-year residencies in pediatrics, family medicine, or internal medicine, physicians become board-eligible following the successful completion of a fellowship program certified by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education.
