Abstract:Our foremost objective was to discover a connection with the University's Applied Health Science (AHS) department merge in 1972 and the involvement of Phyllis Hill. After searching through University archives, past Daily Illini and AHS Newsletter publications we were able to determine Phyllis Hill's contribution in the organization of the new curriculum. We also investigated other department histories within the Big 10 conference and confirmed the University of Illinois was among the first to merge both women and men's AHS programs with possible influence from Title IX.
