Press activities are scheduled for Monday, October 4, and Tuesday, October 5, in the Clinical Congress Press Conference Room.  These sessions provide a unique opportunity for reporters to interview key speakers away from the presentation podium and to ask their own questions to customize their coverage for their readers, listeners, or viewers.
