This is part one of the two-part series covering #PizzaIsNotWorking. This first episode will cover our guest, Bled Tanoe, PharmD, and her journey in the pharmacy that eventually led her to create #PizzaIsNotWorking and her findings as to why this movement is so important in the pharmacy world.

The bottom line is pharmacy technicians have long been underpaid, overworked, and underappreciated… and it seems the breaking point has been reached. The burnout rate is too high in pharmacies and today’s guest is taking a stand to combat these conditions and fight for change.

Topics discussed in this episode include:

·         Bled Tanoe’s background in pharmacy

·         How roles in the pharmacy shaped Bled’s way of thinking toward pharmacy roles

·         How Bled progressed with the same pharmacy in her career

·         How #PizzaIsNotWorking could be affected by COVID-19

·         Bled’s working relationship with her technicians
