KoronisFest pays homage to Koronis, who began life as a princess in ancient Greece. Legend says she and Apollo, the sun god, were lovers. Like most relationships, theirs had its ups and downs. But in time Koronis gave birth to Asklepios, god of medicine.
Asklepios fathered Hygeia, the goddess of good health. She gave us the word “hygiene.” We take Koronis, then, to be the grandmother of public health. And so we adopt her as our patron.
