The Hippocrates Initiative began in 2009 as the Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine for an unpublished poem on a medical subject. The Hippocrates Initiative now also includes the international Hippocrates Society for Poetry and Medicine, the Hippocrates Press, annual international symposia, an international research forum for poetry and medicine, and workshops. Since its launch in 2009, the annual Hippocrates Prize has attracted thousands of entries from over 60 countries.
