Executive Director, Transamerica Center for Health Studies

Hector De La Torre is the Executive Director of the Transamerica Center for Health Studies, a nonprofit focused on helping consumers and businesses navigate the health care landscape.

Among his accomplishments as an elected official were expanding access to doctors in underserved communities, consumer protections against retroactive cancellation of health insurance, and supporting facilities improvements at Children’s Hospitals.

"I feel that the Transamerica Center for Health Studies is a public service—consumers and businesses are looking for help as they try to navigate the shifting health care landscape," said De La Torre. "We at TCHS are committed to helping them better understand their options to make good health care decisions."

De La Torre is also a member of the Board of Trustees at Occidental College in Los Angeles and serves on the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as a gubernatorial appointee.
