For new members, the ECIR Group was started by our Founder, Robin Siskel, in December of 1999. The group was born out of a desperate need for solid, scientific information and solutions to help horses with Cushing’s Disease. It was through Robin’s initial determination that the ECIR Group did not simply become another internet chat group. ECIR Group continues to forge that same path today.
In 2013, The Equine Cushing’s and Insulin Resistance Group Inc., an Arizona-based nonprofit corporation, was duly recognized as a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Our on-going strategic plan identifies key areas needed for growth to further the mission of the ECIR Group. As a result, we need more people helping in a wide number of areas described below.
