Literary prize in the field of medicine “Healthy mind” in 2023 is held for the fifth time. It is designed to support medical practice, popularize basic biomedical knowledge in society, promote a healthy lifestyle, and cultivate a culture of health.
The founders of the award are the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, the Doctor TV channel and the Technologies of Trust company.
The Award Board includes the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko, the head of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA of Russia) Veronika Skvortsova, MD, independent chief oncologist of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Andrey Kaprin and others .
The selection of winners is carried out in several stages:
– from March 27 to May 31, applications are accepted on the award website;

– from July 24 to September 18, a popular vote will be held on the CrowdSpace platform;
– From September 25 to October 16, the members of the award jury will determine a winner in each of the candidacies.
“The Sanity Award is not only a new book, but also a part of the history of medicine and society. Every year we add new pages to it. It is very important to us that more and more doctors and scientists feel inspired by the opportunity to tell about themselves, their experiences and observations to a wide range of readers. And the number of people discovering the world of popular scientific medical literature is growing proportionately. I am sure that in the future books worthy of our contemporaries will be read with the same interest with which we read the memoirs of Russian and Soviet doctors of past centuries today,” says Evelina Zakamskaya, editor-in-chief of the Doctor TV channel.
The award’s expert council included representatives of the medical community, the media and publishers, which are necessary to ensure an independent and professional assessment of compliance with declared nominations, monitor and ensure transparency of the award in the selection of jobs.

“Step Forward” – books on the history of medical science, its possibilities and discoveries, based on evidence-based medicine.

Igor Lotakov, Managing Partner of TeDo: “We are proud that we became one of the founders of the award five years ago. In recent years, its relevance and success have become evident. How many wonderful authors have been discovered and how many have been helped to promote their work! Sanity is one of those awards that has become increasingly popular over the years. Because? “Health is not everything, but everything without health is nothing,” said Socrates. It is unlikely that anyone will argue with this. Isn’t it great that we are once again in the middle of some useful reading!”
