Press Registration for AACR Meetings

Thank you for your interest in covering the AACR’s scientific meetings. Before completing this form, please carefully review the AACR’s full Press Registration Policy. After you submit the form, a member of the AACR Communications and Public Relations Department will review your eligibility and follow up with next steps.


To register as press, journalists must provide official press credentials such as a business card, editorial roster or masthead, international press card, or letter of assignment. Journalists must also provide at least two links and/or PDFs of bylined coverage from a previous AACR meeting, or, for first time-attendees, two examples of recent bylined health/medical/science coverage published in news outlets that meet the AACR’s criteria. Freelance journalists who have a letter of assignment should upload a copy of the letter below. Members of the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ) are permitted to register for complimentary access to AACR meetings regardless of assignment. AHCJ members can upload proof of membership below.
