Stanley C. Weisser, R.Ph., D.H.L. (Hon), has been reappointed to the California State Board of Pharmacy by Governor Brown. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger first appointed Mr. Weisser to the Board of Pharmacy on November 1, 2007. Mr. Weisser graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy in 1963 and became a licensed pharmacist in California that same year.
After opening his first pharmacy in 1969, his business, Network Pharmaceuticals, Inc., eventually grew into a chain of 30 pharmacies located in Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada. Stan retired in 2000 as CEO and president of NPI.
One of his pharmacies dispensed prescriptions to over 1,000 patients in convalescent homes and over 8,000 inmates in correctional facilities in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The other pharmacies were located in medical buildings.
Mr. Weisser is presently an associate professor of Pharmacotherapy and Outcomes Science at the Loma Linda University School of Pharmacy, and a member of the California Pharmacists Association.
Stan is very active in many San Bernardino County philanthropic activities as well as civic, cultural, and educational programs. Among them are Redlands Community Foundation, FEMA sponsored Emergency Food and Shelter Program, Redlands Unified School District Oversight Committee, San Bernardino County Schools Reorganization Committee, Redlands Theatre Festival, and Grove Charter School for which he was the founding member and five-year chairman of the board.
He has been on the executive committee of the board of the Redlands Community Hospital for over 25 years and was elected chairman for five of those years. Additionally, he is a trustee on the University of Redlands Board of Trustees, serving as chairman of the finance committee and a member of its executive committee. His term will expire June 1, 2015.
