Gov. Sam Brownback has named a northeast Kansas physician to the State Board of Healing Arts.

The Republican governor's office says Dr. Joel Hutchins of Holton will serve a four-year term on the 15-member board, which licenses and regulates physicians.

Hutchins will replace Dr. Nancy Welsh, of Topeka. Welsh was appointed by Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and served on the board since 2004 before stepping down in November.

A biography posted online by his family medical practice at Holton Community Hospital says Hutchins is a former Air Force pilot who has practiced medicine for more than 20 years. He earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine.
