Dr. Waltzer has been at Belhaven University for 28 years. He received his doctorate in Anatomy at Ohio State University. While he was there, he received Jesus Christ. Dr. Waltzer taught and did research at Ohio State and other institutions before coming to Belhaven University in 1993. Since coming to Belhaven University, he has worked closely with a former professor who helped him learn about intelligent design and understand more deeply God's creation.
