MEDIA ACCESS REQUIREMENTS for Scientific Sessions 2021

It is a two-step registration process.

Step 1: All journalists must REGISTER HERE for access to the main Scientific Sessions virtual meeting.

  • Please review the updated registration requirements and AHA Embargo and Recording Policies, including who can and cannot apply for embargoed access to AHA/ASA news media materials via the password protected newsroom (PPN).
  • Meeting registration includes an “electronic badge” that will provide access to the live, main event (late-breaking science) sessions virtually.
  • Technical assistance for the online registration process is available via a link at the bottom of each page of the registration form.
Step 2: You will be required to apply for access to the Sessions Password-Protected Newsroom (PPN) or use your current user name and password when the SS 2021 PPN link becomes available HERE approximately two weeks prior to the meeting.

  • Journalists who have not accessed the AHA's main PPN within the last calendar year will be required to re-apply.
  • The PPN includes access to the embargoed press materials and resources and the live, embargoed news briefings.
