Healthy Heart Awards

Schools participating in our Healthy Heart initiative receive a Healthy Heart Award certificate to recognize their interest in education about how to keep the heart healthy. 

See below for the 22 schools which have since 2011 received Healthy Heart Awards from the healthy heart charity the Cardiovascular Research Trust.

The Hippocrates Initiative established Healthy Heart Poetry in partnership with the healthy heart charity the Cardiovascular Research Trust. The aim of the Healthy Heart Poetry initiative is to encourage interest among children of all ages in lifestyle that helps to keep the heart healthy. 

Selected poems are published in an anthology, the first of which, Love your Heart, was published on 4th December 2014. Entries are open for poems from children for consideration for the 2015 Healthy Heart Poetry anthology, deadline 1st July 2015.

There is an annual Healthy Heart Poetry event at which the Healthy Heart Poetry Anthology is launched, the children have the opportunity to read their poems from the published Anthology, and Healthy Heart Awards are presented to participating schools.

The 2014 Healthy Heart Poetry event takes place in London on 4th December and includes the launch of the Love your Heart anthology of poems on the heart by children for children, and presentation of Healthy Heart Awards to 19 schools.
