Men's Health Handbook was developed by Dr. Rance Hutchings. Dr. Hutchings received his Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from the University of Washington in 2000. He went on to receive his advanced practice license and is currently licensed as a Pharmacist Clinician. He has specializing in men’s health, mental health, and sexual addiction disorders for over a decade.
He has been a physician educator for 20 years and has taught men’s health, mental health, and sexual addiction in the community, clinic, and university settings.
Dr. Hutchings has a unique perspective and sat on both sides of men’s health discussions. He has been the patient and has personally experienced many of the disorders outlined on this website. He has also been the clinician and assisted men in getting treatment for men’s health issues. Since he has been both the patient and the healthcare provider, this book tends to address men’s health issues from two views - the patient (“Average Joe”) and the healthcare professional tasked with helping him improve his health.
