Jeremy Van't Hof is a Minnesota native who traveled to Michigan for undergraduate training in biochemistry (Calvin College) and then to California for medical school (Loma Linda University). Informing his lifelong interest in public health, he spent a key five month period in Honduras as a rural health clinic volunteer performing rural medicine outreach. He returned to Minnesota in 2012 in order to complete an Internal Medicine Residency and Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship at the University of Minnesota.Dr. Van't Hof's clinical interests include early detection of cardiovascular disease in order to prevent or delay the onset of cardiovascular events, familial hypercholesterolemia, resistant hypertension and complex polyvascular disease. He believes in an integrative treatment approach combining lifestyle alterations with evidence based medical therapy to maximize physical and mental health as well as quality of life. Dr. Van't Hof's research interest involves improving cardiovascular disease detection and early intervention. He believes that poor cardiovascular health is often a result of poor public health literacy, linked to inefficiencies created by the current "sickness-based" health care delivery system. The failure of cardiovascular prevention is a key factor that leads individuals to a less happy, less productive, and shorter life. Dr. Van't Hof is dedicated to all efforts that improve both individual cardiovascular health and population health through public health research and intervention.
