De la Torre is an agricultural economist who has studied Latino health issues in the United States and Mexico for more than 25 years.

She is the chair of the UC Davis Department of Chicana/o Studies and director of the university's Center for Transnational Health.

Her current research focuses on Chicano/Latino health issues, U.S.-Mexico binational health; and disparities in health and science education for Mexican-heritage children in California. ("Mexican-heritage" refers to individuals who are born in Mexico, whose parents were born in Mexico or whose grandparents were born in Mexico.) Much of de la Torre's funded research has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the state of California and private foundations.

She is co-editor of a new book, "Speaking from the Body: Latinas on Health and Culture," a collection of personal reflections on health care experiences from Latina patients or their family caregivers or friends. She is author of the books "Sana, Sana: Mexican Americans and Health" (2001) and "Moving From the Margins: A Chicana's View of Public Policy" (2002).
