A somewhat overweight Maori woman is sitting in a doctor's surgery in front of the doctor who lounges against his desk writing on his pad. He tells her that she has a couple of problems which will be put right with smoking, drinking, betting and eating fatty foods. The cartoon refers to a recent book co-authored by trust chairman Peter Caccioppoli and Rhys Cullen, a GP at the trust's Papakura practice and published using funds from Mr Caccioppoli's family trust. The book suggests that health advice criticising smoking, drinking too much and eating too much fatty food is a Pakeha model that is not necessarily right for Maori.
