University Health Services chief David S. Rosenthal ’59 said he was asked by Wang’s family to publicize the funeral to the Harvard community. Harvard paid for Wang’s parents, who live in Guangzhou, China, to travel to the United States for the funeral.
The Wing Kook home is located at 13 Gerard Street, in the South End area of Boston. The funeral will continue until approximately 1 p.m., according to Rosenthal.
The mental health services division of UHS and the Bureau of Study Counsel have been organizing grief counseling for friends of Wang, Rosenthal said.
