NACHC welcomes members of the press to our virtual conferences. The number of passes are limited. We require that press register in advance at least 3 days before the conference begins. NACHC provides complimentary online registration to accredited professional journalists representing media organizations for the express purpose of gathering news and information. We do not provide complimentary registration to public relations professionals, marketing or health care professionals representing themselves as press.
Journalists must present media identification or a business card issued by a recognized news organization or publication. Journalists reporting for online media outlets (including blogs) who wish to register as press must work for news-making organizations or private blogs that meet the following criteria:
- The web site must provide original, editorial news coverage;
- Editorial content must be independent of advertising and sponsorship;
- Press credentials are subject to review by NACHC.
Conference Education Sessions:
NACHC education sessions for attendees are open to the press on a limited and background basis only. Requests for on-the-record interviews with presenters, speakers, or attendees must be coordinated with NACHC Communications staff.
