Eastern University’s mission of faith, reason and justice is what made me want to teach here, but the students and faculty are what make we want to stay.  At Eastern University you'll find a Theological perspective on every subject taught.  Professors at Eastern will bring you the same current, expert instruction found at secular schools, but reinforced and refined with eternal truth.
Teaching Exercise Science at Eastern University allows me to instruct how optimal physical fitness of the body, including weight and cardiovascular training, is an affirmation of three foundational theological principles of human embodiment:  as created in the “imago Dei”, as unified body/spirit, and as part of God’s creation calling for proper stewardship.


Dr. Greenwood's research interests include substrate utilization during exercise, low carbohydrate diets and body image.  Dr. Greenwood is also a Contributing Science Author for Fitness Prescription for Women.
