MEDIA ACCESS REQUIREMENTS for Scientific Sessions 2022

It is a two-step registration process.

Step 1: All journalists must REGISTER HERE for access to the main Scientific Sessions virtual meeting. Media who register to attend in-person will have access to sessions on-site in Chicago and on the virtual platform.

  • 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: Separate, approved login credentials are required for journalists to access the embargoed Sessions Password-Protected Newsroom (SSPPN),

  • When you open the link, you may login on the left of the page or select the link on the right of the page to request PPN access. Please see the Home tab for important information on navigating the SSPPN. Please do not share this link as log-ins are monitored.
  • Journalists who have not accessed the AHA's main PPN within the last calendar year will be required to re-apply and some criteria for access may have changed.
