Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Dear Xiangya Alumni,
 
With the greatest sadness, we inform you of the untimely passing of Professor Yaofan Wen (温耀繁) on Friday, September 26, in San Diego, California. 

Professor Wen was a founding member and honorary president of XYOAA.  He was also a former Dean of Xiangya Hospital and a Professor at Xiangya School of Medicine.  Since he came to US in 80's, he had spent his entire time in Houston, Texas.  He had continued to work in medicine for years both as a teacher at a local school of Traditional Chinese Medicine and as a clinician of a solo practice in Houston.  He will be deeply remembered by many students and alumni he had taught, trained and helped. 

Xiangya Overseas Alumni Association (XYOAA) expresses our deepest condolence to Professor Wen's family. Professor Wen was an accomplished researcher, a devoted physician, a dedicated mentor, and a beloved friend to many of us. We will miss him dearly.

A memorial service will be held this Saturday on October 4th, 2014, at 10:00 Am at 12800 Westheimer, Houston, TX 77077 (Forest Park Westhermier Cemetery). All alumni are invited to attend the service and to bid a final farewell to our beloved Teacher Wen.
 
If you wish to send your condolence, please contact Mr. Yuan Din, the elder son of Professor Wen, at 713-208-7590, email: dingyuan62@gmail.com.
