Jean M. Dowling
VIRGINIA BEACH -- To scores of family throughout Hampton Roads, Jean M. Dowling, M.D., was physician, patient advocate and personal friend. To colleagues, she was an innovator, an educator and a fervent crusader for patient's rights. The well-known child psychiatrist died Thursday, Oct. 7, 1999, at her daughter's home in Atlanta, Ga. She was 70 years old.

Jean Dowling came to Hampton Roads in 1970 from metropolitan New York, where she earned her bachelor's degree in 1950 from the College of New Rochelle. She was one of only four women in her class at New York Medical College, graduating in 1954 at the top of her class.

Dr. Dowling received her initial postgraduate training in pediatrics and was named chief resident. She then undertook a second residency in child psychiatry under the direction of Loretta Bender, M.D., whose groundbreaking work in biologically based theories of neuro-psychiatric treatment were influential in Dr. Dowling's career.

Upon her arrival in Hampton Roads, Dr. Dowling assumed the leadership of Mental Health Services for the city of Portsmouth, and later became the Director of Mental Health Services for the city of Virginia Beach. She pioneered several treatment intervention programs for very young children, many of which are used today in area mental health clinics and church programs. She lectured extensively to community leaders, educators and professional groups, and mentored many local mental health professionals.

Jean Dowling spent the past 25 years in the private practice of child psychiatry in Virginia Beach. Her treatment methodology was intensive, and highly individualized to meet the unique needs of each patient. She accepted only a small number of her thorough clinical evaluations. As managed healthcare began to threaten the integrity of her patient's care, Dr. Dowling became a strenuous defender of adequate mental health benefits.

The widow of Lee B. Frank Jr., Dr. Dowling is survived by her daughters, Grace B. Foster and Audrey B. Windsor, both of Atlanta; her son-in-law, John J. Foster III; and three granddaughters. She also leaves her sister-in-law, Mary I. Dowling; her nephews Alan, Laurence and Christopher Dowling; and a niece, Katherine Dowling Schlaerth.
