Meet Dr. Nadine Caron, Canada's first female First Nations surgeon

Elizabeth Hoath has been with CBC Radio for close to 25 years. After getting her journalism degree at Carleton University, she headed north to start her career in Whitehorse and Inuvik, where she was a reporter, producer and host with CBC North. After adventures that included flying in a CF-18 and documenting a musk-ox harvest on remote Banks Island, she moved back to Vancouver to work on local radio programs. For the past five years she's been a producer on The Current where she is often producing forums, remote broadcasts and feature interviews.

Cathy Simon is a senior producer on The Current with 30 years experience in various positions at CBC Radio. Originally from Montreal, she has been based in Quebec City, Iqaluit and now Vancouver. Her work has taken her to meet people and hear their stories in communities across Canada, as well as in India.

Laura Lynch has more than 20 years of experience covering stories across Canada and around the world. Born in North Vancouver, she began her career on the west coast, then ventured to Parliament Hill and on to foreign postings in Washington, D.C. and London. She returned to Canada in 2012 and has put much of her focus on issues surrounding Canada's First Nations and refugees. She has a journalism degree from Carleton University, a law degree from the University of Victoria, and was the winner of a Nieman fellowship at Harvard University.
