BOSTON, May 4, 2010 What better venue than Boston with its famed medical institutions for a major scientific conference with the theme "Chemistry for Preventing & Combating Disease"?

This historic Northeast city will, in fact, be the setting for such an event - the American Chemical Society's (ACS') 240th National Meeting & Exposition, Aug. 22-26. In addition to focusing on health, the gathering will offer print, broadcast, and online journalists a rich assortment of spot news and feature possibilities with nearly 8,000 presentations on new discoveries that span science's horizons from astronomy to zoology. The topics include food and nutrition, medicine, health, energy, the environment, and other fields where chemistry plays a central role.

Presentations will take place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and at downtown hotels.

The ACS Office of Public Affairs will operate a Press Center in the Convention Center. It will host daily press conferences and a news media workroom fully staffed to assist in arranging interviews. The Press Center will have wireless Internet access, telephones, computers, photocopy and fax services, and refreshments.

Embargoed copies of press releases, non-technical summaries of newsworthy presentations, and a press conference schedule will be available in August. Reporters planning to cover the meeting from their home bases will have access to the press conferences over the Internet in ACS' popular "Live Chat" format. Watch for information on applying for complimentary press accreditation in the weeks ahead.
