Press Coverage and Social Media

About the AACR Annual Meeting Press Program
The AACR Annual Meeting garners the best in national and international news, with research from last year’s meeting covered by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, CBS, CNBC, and many others.

The AACR Annual Meeting 2019 press program will feature high-impact science that strengthens our understanding of cancer, as well as clinical trial results that highlight new treatment options and promise for cancer patients. Registered reporters will have access to the press room, three press conferences, interview space, embargoed media materials, and scientific experts.
Registration is complimentary for credentialed news media. Reporters planning to cover remotely should register as well so that they receive all relevant communications sent before and during the meeting. 

Please visit our newsroom for registration criteria, embargo policies, and details about on-site coverage.
