Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) 81st Scientific Sessions will be a virtual experience.
The ADA will provide complimentary remote access to credentialed members of the media, including print, broadcast and online media, for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce news coverage of the 81st Scientific Sessions. Media registration is intended for representatives of news media outlets that provide widely accessible, regularly appearing, original news coverage to professionals and the general public.
Representatives from qualified media outlets must represent the editorial staff, not the advertising or marketing staff of their news organization. Publishers of books and magazines, and representatives of sales, advertising or marketing departments of publications and broadcast outlets are not considered part of the editorial staff and are not permitted to register as media.
Registered members of the media will receive a “virtual briefing packet” containing embargoed materials in advance of the scheduled research presentations. In addition, a fully-staffed press team will be able to assist approved members of the media in securing interviews, as in years past.
