Tama Koia

Tama Koia comes from Gisborne (Ngati Porou) and has spent a large portion of his life here. He went through the plant-based diet programme known as BROAD back around 2014 and managed to improve his type II diabetes to the point where he no longer needs to use insulin. He has since become a passionate advocate of the plant-based diet and has worked with rangatahi to help promote health and wellness.
