A pharmacist who refused to refill or transfer a college student's prescription for birth control pills violated standards of care by not releasing the prescription or telling her about other ways she could get her pills, a former director of the state Pharmacy Internship Board testified Tuesday. Noesen, 30, could lose his license for not helping Amanda Phiede get her birth control pills. A state Department of Regulation and Licensing complaint accuses Noesen of putting her in harm's way by not transferring the prescription.
