The American Chemical Society’s (ACS’) Spring 2019 National Meeting & Exposition, one of the largest scientific conferences of the year, will be held March 31-April 4, 2019 in Orlando, FL. The topics include food and nutrition, medicine, health, energy, the environment and other fields where chemistry plays a central role. Some of those presentations will connect with the meeting’s theme, “Chemistry for New Frontiers.” Reporters planning to cover the meeting from their home bases will have access to the press conferences on YouTube. We hope to see you there! ALSO - Please be sure to check out our videos from our previous meeting in Boston, MA. at: http://bit.ly/ACSLive_Boston2018.
