The SM Fall 2016 Cutting Edge in CIRS III meeting will be held at the distinctive Hotel Irvine in Irvine, California.  The general sessions will cover Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning, October 14-16, 2016.  The meeting’s main theme is “Expanding Horizons”.  Sessions are set aside for the basics of CIRS, Indoor Environmental Professional talks and how the horizons of CIRS are expanding in your practice.
We are seeking topics and presenters for the following topics and more:
What is a CIRS?
How is CIRS diagnosed and treated?
How would someone explain the Biotoxin Pathway to a patient?
How should patients avoid toxic exposures?
What does every provider need to know about remediation?
What trends or observations have you noticed and tested in your practice?

A space for posters will be available.  Also new are performance deadlines required to receive honoraria.  Deadlines are needed to obtain the CME credit offered (anticipate 16-18 hours), prepare schedules and smooth video production.
