The Hippocrates Association in Larissa was established in June 2015 and, among other interests, it aims at the research, study and publicity of Hippocrates work, as well as the emergence of the Hippocratic idea as part of the identity of Larissa. Hippocrates was born on the island of Kos in 460 BC. He spent the last years of his life in the city of Larissa, where he practiced medicine and died in 377 BC. Hippocrates is the founder of rational medicine. He managed to release it from the metaphysical elements, superstitions and prejudices of his era.
