  • If the Framingham Heart Study Did Not Invent the Risk Factor, Who Did'
    • Abstract: Medical theory and practice in the second half of the 20th century were transformed by the idea of risk, and, in particular, by the concept of the "risk factor." Many historians have described how the concept of the risk factor emerged in the actuarial science of the life insurance industry in the early 20th century and entered medicine through the Framingham Heart Study (FHS), specifically with its July 1961 article, "Factors of Risk in the Development of Coronary Heart Disease," in the Annals of Internal Medicine (Kannel et al. 1961). This story, while plausible, is incorrect.New techniques of digital history enable a new kind of research: full-text searching of publications in medicine, public health, and other ... Read More

  • The Etiological Stance: Explaining Illness Occurrence
    • Abstract: Models of illness causation play a crucial role in medicine and public health. In their recent paper on this topic, Michael Kelly, Rachel Kelly, and Federica Russo (2014) state that the integration of social, biological, and behavioral causes in one and the same etiologic mechanism remains to be clarified. In particular, they think that current models of illness causation do not appreciate "the truly integrated nature of bio-social-behavioral pathogenesis" (309). In brief, Kelly, Kelly, and Russo suggest that (1) two levels of explanation are at work in medicine and public health, biological and social; (2) that integration is difficult because of resistance to including social determinants of disease in both the ...

  • Biocontaining: Purification, Restoration, and Meaning-Making
    • Abstract: In this article, we contribute to the ongoing investigation of the social significance of biomedicine by examining a very specific site: the activity of bio-containing in Nebraska during the recent Ebola outbreak. We do this by taking up key insights of Mary Douglas and Victor Turner concerning the essential meaning-making tasks of culture. We demonstrate how biocontaining as an activity contributed to the ongoing meaning-making work in U.S. society during the Ebola crisis in 2014. The analysis is based in significant part on fieldwork done at the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit (NBU), study of NBU educational materials, and follow-up conversations with personnel staffing that unit.Biocontaining during the Ebola ...

  • The Best Interest Standard: Same Name but Different Roles in Pediatric
           Bioethics and Child Rights Frameworks
    • Abstract: The "best interest of the child" standard is central to both pediatric bioethics and the child rights community. In pediatric bioethics in the United States, the best interest of the child standard is cited as the guidance principle for parental decision-making (Buchanan and Brock 1989).1 Likewise, in the child rights community, the best interest of the child standard is "of paramount consideration" (UN 1984, Article 3(1)). Both approaches also recognize parental rights and responsibilities and support a role for the maturing child in the decision-making process. Why, then, do members of the pediatric bioethics community and the child rights communities not speak the same language'This article was developed out of ... Read More

  • Marston Bates, Visionary Environmentalist
    • Abstract: In 1967, the American Geographical Society awarded Marston Bates with one of its highest honors, the Charles P. Daly medal. In giving this award, they noted thatMarston Bates wears an almost bewildering variety of scholarly hats, and all of them become him. He is at one and the same time biologist, zoologist, medical ecologist, naturalist, humanist, and, unquestionably, also geographer manqué. . . . He possesses a gift of clear and literate exposition; his style displays a philosophic bent, an acuity of perception, and a spark of humor that together make for delightful reading.(Bates 1967, flyleaf)Bates was an early bioethicist, in the sense that he was one of the first thinkers in the 20th century to ...

  • A Child's Right to Be Well Born: Venereal Disease and the Eugenic Marriage
           Laws, 1913–1935
    • Abstract: For nearly a century, and until very recently, the majority of U.S. states required a blood test for marriage license applicants. The tests identified people with conditions formerly designated as "venereal diseases," most importantly gonorrhea and syphilis. Those who tested positive were barred from civil marriage. Although the premarital testing requirement is no longer a feature of state law, numerous related enactments are common features of law in most states.The historical literature describing the rise and fall of laws prescribing marriage restrictions related to VD has treated those enactments as public health measures, meant primarily to forestall the spread of disease to intimate partners. But laws to ... Read More

  • Maintaining Compassion for the Suffering Terminal Patient While Preserving
           Life: An Orthodox Jewish Approach
    • Abstract: Modern technology offers the ability to prolong life by supporting physiologic processes in dying patients who would have succumbed more peacefully to their illnesses in the past. We prolong life, but witness the pain and suffering that our interventions cause. Regardless of one's religious beliefs, the process of making end-of-life decisions is inherently difficult and emotionally trying. The caregiver, family member or friend is faced with making heart-wrenching decisions for loved ones where the line between support and cruelty may feel blurred.This is the nature of ethical dilemmas that arise when core ethical principles collide, necessitating the establishment of the primacy of one over the other. It is ... Read More

  • Choosing to Care for Children Who Might Die: Conversations with Pediatric
           Residents
    • Abstract: Not long after matriculation—sometimes even before—medical students begin hearing the question, "So, what are you going into'" It can be heard as a colloquial version of a practical question, "To which type of residency (graduate medical training) are you planning to apply'" Some will evade the question, claiming, perhaps sincerely, to be fascinated by everything from radiology to geriatrics, open to all possible paths. Others will acknowledge that they enjoy or dread working with children, that they crave long-term relationships or bursts of adrenaline, that they are drawn to the knife or sickened at the sight of blood. A smaller number will confess to having a clear vision of their futures, perhaps a desire to ... Read More

  • In Pursuit of Educational Integrity: Professional Identity Formation in
           the Harvard Medical School Cambridge Integrated Clerkship
    • Abstract: Medical students' professional identity formation (PIF) is an adaptive, developmental process. PIF is shaped by values implicit in educational practices and in the culture of the learning environment (Boudreau, Macdonald, and Steinert 2014; Cook, Irby, and O'Brien 2010; Cruess et al. 2014, 2015; Goldie 2013; Holden et al. 2015; Rabow et al. 2010; Wald 2015; Wald et al. 2015). In 2003, educational leaders at Harvard Medical School (HMS) created the Cambridge Integrated Clerkship (CIC) as a new model of clinical education to support PIF intentionally (Hirsh et al. 2007). The CIC, a longitudinal integrated clerkship (LIC), differs in structure, processes, and venues from traditional block rotations (TBRs), while ... Read More

  • Hope and Resentment
    • Abstract: I have sometimes mused about writing an essay on what insights for understanding the doctor-patient relationship might be gleaned from P. F. Strawson's magisterial British Academy address, "Freedom and Resentment" (1962). This might seem an odd thought. The preoccupations of "Freedom and Resentment" are highly abstract, meta-ethical, and perhaps even meta-philosophical. Its aim is to turn philosophical discussion of moral responsibility away from two seductive yet unprofitable temptations.One temptation is the insistence that, if morality is to be all it seems, human beings must in some respects not be fully subject to natural law. If we are morally responsible for what we do and omit to do, we must be able to ... Read More

  • The Body Politic in Pain
    • Abstract: Over the last year, pundits looking for an explanation for the improbable victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election have turned to the opioid epidemic, a public health crisis qua political crisis. Since the widespread closure of steel mills and other manufacturing plants throughout middle America in the 1980s, a new so-called "Oxy electorate" has emerged, citizens who rely on painkillers to ameliorate the material realities of economic decline and loss of community. According to postelection statistics, six of the nine counties in Ohio that flipped from traditionally Democratic to vote Republican in 2016 logged an overdose rate that well exceeded the national average. Historian Kathleen Frydl ... Read More
