Diane Corcoran photoWith sadness, but also with gratitude for her many years of devoted service and contributions, IANDS announces the passing of Diane Corcoran on Sunday, March 5, 2023. At the time of her transition, Diane was an active member of the Board of Directors, a multiple-time IANDS past-president, creator and leader of the Veterans Sharing Group, and near-death experiencer (NDEr).

For more than 20 years, Diane used her skills as a retired military nurse (Colonel, US Army) and her PhD in nursing administration to serve in various leadership positions in IANDS, focusing especially on educating medical professionals about NDEs and providing support to military veteran NDErs.

Her exceptional dedication to IANDS is illustrated by the fact that, occasionally from her hospital ICU bed throughout the weekend of February 25, she joined the IANDS Board of Directors virtually at its annual meeting in Durham, NC.
