My practicum placement at the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is now halfway completed and I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. Within PHAC, I work in the National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in the Public Health Risk Sciences division. The focus of my project is to complete a scoping literature review on a mosquito-borne disease. I have already completed several stages of the review such as drafting a protocol, completing the literature search, and screening the identified documents for relevance. Currently, I am in the data characterization stage of my project.
