Ghana Medical Facilities: probability of occurrance

"Alex has that rare and enviable skill of breaking information down into such simple and straightforward parts that things that previously seemed impenetrable suddenly seem very clear and straightforward. She is a very calm yet hugely enthusiastic teacher who imparts her knowledge in a way that makes everything fun and exciting. I have watched as she has turned people convinced that they could never code into professional R users who have never looked back"
